My thoughts and musings on a variety of things. Some web-tech related, some philosophical, some of a religious nature and some just me trying to process something as honestly as I can.
Resonating with Albert Eistein
Some quotes by Albert Eistein that deeply resonate at the moment.
My Front End Resources 2023
The last time I shared a post on my list of frontend resources was back in 2019. I think it's about time I posted an update — seeing that's it's 2023 after all.
World population growth
This is both disturbing and mesmerising. Watching in ‘real-time’ the global population grow.
It is interesting how a trauma or potentially bad news can snap one into focus. It has the liberating effect of pushing all the not so important things right to the back of the queue. It’s like life seems to gain this unexpected yet welcomed clarity.
Redesigning in the open
I've decided to take the scary route (for me anyway) of redesigning and developing my website in the open. I've been inspired by others that have done this and thought it may be an interesting process. Not least because I'm a bit of a perfectionist and doing this may be a good way of weaning me off the need to have things completely polished before showing them. 😱
"Do not ask your children to strive"
A poem by William Martin.
"The Guy in the Glass"
I attended a dear family friend's memorial recently. A person who really was the salt of the earth. One of his nephews read out the poem, "The Guy in the Glass". It moved me deeply so I thought I'd share it here.
These are strange times for sure and all too often I’m finding myself overly concerned with the future and primarily its potential outworking for my kids. Most of which I have no way of controlling anyway; and yet these thoughts can end up taking up a big chunk of space in my mind and sapping me of energy.
Today I lost a very dear friend and I'm still reeling in disbelief. Pete's his name. Peter Hart.
A front-end muddle
If you find yourself getting in a muddle about what front-end development entails these days.
My Front End Resources 2019
I thought it may be nice to list out some of the people, blogs, resources and tools I find myself referring to a fair amount these days while doing the front-end design and developer thing. I'm indebted to many of the people here and am grateful that they've given so generously of their skills, experience and time.
Blood, skin and tech wizardry
I can't help thinking that there’s more at stake here if we merely get wrapped up in creating new technologies just because we can.
It feels like a reset. A reboot on every level. Things I thought I knew for certain, I now question.
A poem I wrote about the many voices in one's head.
I think real Hope and Faith will show themselves again when we least expect it. That's my hope although very very fragile.
