There is no right answer only the next action. When you begin to make every decision, every choice intentional, you stop caring if you’re right. Intentional living is about owning who you are, loving what you do and the people with whom you spend your time.
Welcome to the second installment of Sunday Morning Links. I made it two weeks – good job me!

Song / Album: Love and Great Buildings from Zombies on Broadway by Andrew Mcmahon | Maybe it is a fact Something Corporate, and Jack’s Mannequin have played such an important part of my life, especially with Kyla, but whenever Andrew McMahon puts out new music, it gets pushed right to the top for me. While I would not call this his best release, it is a nice, upbeat, 38-minute distraction from the world.
I know what you are thinking, and I’ve heard it before. “What the hell is a minimalist gamer? This can’t be a thing. Isn’t Minimalism about giving things up? Living with less? Not spending time on the superfluous?”
Quick answer: I’ll get to that, yes, yes and yes.
Starting a new feature this week I am calling Lazy Sunday Morning Links. I am using this to share my favorite finds of the previous seven days. The idea behind this series is to document the things that bring me joy throughout the year. The goal is to begin a routine of recording my finds before the little one is born in May. I hope items shared on these lists will provide you some enjoyment as they have for me.

Song: Ran from Future Islands | Future Islands released my favorite album of 2014, so to see new music from them in Spotify this week almost made my month on day one. It is like an old friend calling out of the blue. 2017 is shaping up to be a benchmark year for music.
Music has always been one of my best tools for reflection. Last year I brought back the end of year playlist. I started to use Spotify shortly after we visited Stockholm in May 2015 and assembled my first year in review playlist in many years last December. Back in the mid-2000s, I would make CDs for my family and friends to give away at Christmas, and it was a great exercise. I was quite happy to have it return.
Then, 2016 happened
I think we all agree that 2016 was a shitty year. But for now, I leave you with my 2016 as told through song. Continue reading “End of the Line: Music for a forgettable year”
I have owned this domain for more than 2600 days. That is over seven years for those keeping score at home. I have always wanted to “do something” with it, but the time was never right. There were always more important things to do. I don’t have that excuse anymore. Time to get to work!
