As I look back to my earliest memories, I do remember a couple of things that happened when I was in kindergarten:

My cat Jules supervising my gardening.

I can barely move around, muscles in my legs, arms, and especially my lower back are sore and hurting a bit. And yet I feel amazing and very happy. I spend 5 hours this morning working in my garden, trying to get everything ready and tidied up before…

All clear for me, no need for quarantine — and it is a shame that I couldn’t stay and work from home. Back in the office, this morning talk between coworkers turned to the fact that it is Friday and the weekend is finally coming. …

This morning I got a haircut like I do every 4 weeks. There is not much up there on top, but I don’t need to shave my head yet and get it over with. Walking out from the barbers, I took a good look at my reflection, and…
