Life Review


Every so often I feel an urge to review my life, not that which has been, though I am sure there is merit in doing so from time to time – especially from a Christian perspective (and I have done that and do do that – more regularly than many other things I do I expect). What I mean is life as a daily thing, that which I do, etc. What are my daily habits and are they profitable or useful? Do I need to tweak things or even completely do away with certain aspects of my daily life and replace them with something else? So that in brief purview is the sort of thing I’m on about.

So having said all that, I am currently in the process of doing this again and that in some detail. My approach on this occasion is to view everything from the start of the day through to the end of the day, applying my focus to one or two areas at a time, so that I can apply some useful changes with applied resilience that will stand the test of life and time – at least until the next review.

So that is what I am currently up to and seeking to sort out. There are useful tools in this digital age to assist and I am using such things as Evernote, One Calendar, Amazon Kindle reading app on my Samsung tablet, my Windows 10 PC, etc. All very modern tools to do a very long established practice throughout the ages.

Annual Leave Almost Up


My three weeks off work are almost up (only 4 days before I’m back at work – yay… NOT!). lol. Actually I don’t mind work – I enjoy the job itself. It will still be difficult to get out of this lazy routine I have managed to establish over the last little while however. I’ll have to start easing my way back to a normal body clock, etc.

I never did get to Uluru this time round – hopefully next year. There was just too much working against the trip this year, with some health issues needing to be sorted, etc. Still, the break has been invaluable and very much appreciated.

Spring has pretty much sprung here, so in lieu of a getaway during my annual leave block, I’m going to try and go camping one weekend, about 2 or 3 weeks after I get back to work. Then I hope to getaway camping for a weekend at least once a month over the warmer months.

Some Changes


My Portal News

I think you can expect to see some changes on some of the websites and Blogs I run in the very near future, including the website this Blog is associated with. Kevin’s Portal has become something of a frustration with me, as I have been unable to update any pages for a while. Indeed, the books page will not update and has even been deleted, without me having any ability to fix the problem – so it is likely that I will be changing hosts very soon. This will also mean a change in URL. So please keep an eye out for that as I won’t be able to change things on the website as it currently stands – i.e. keep an eye on this Blog.

Another big change – at least for me – will be the way I do Blog posts right across the board. I have a…

Pointless Unplugging


The link below is to an article which provides some further commentary on the sort of thing I was writing about in my previous post really. The article linked to below explores the pointlessness of unplugging in a digital age, to which I agree by the way. Perhaps we need to find a better balance in a digital world.
