This site is a collection of emails & essays mostly written to & for friends. Almost all of the writing is by Nik, with a few additions by Steve.
Application is about stuff we’re actually doing or getting done and is usually a co-category with Letters.
The Book section is a couple of pieces that’ll eventually be woven into a book. Lots more to write, and some of it cuts off in mid-thought; this is just raw writing.
Building Blocks, Great Quotes and Home & Green are all bits and pieces of what I’m thinking at any one time. I really dig the Greeks, esp. the Stoics. Turned on to them through JB Stockdale and Thoughts of a Philosophical Fighter Pilot and by WG.
Ideas contains stuff that comes in bursts, usually very early in the morning and usually centered around teaching and a unique skill set.
Letters is the meat of this so far and consists mainly of letters between my friends & I. Reading through them gives a good idea of how I think, feel, and generally view life.
Mechaniking covers the occasional work I do on my 2002 VW Golf TDI.
Paleo Treats stuff: If you dig PT go check out www.paleotreats.com
Teaching is self explanatory. Occasionally I get the chance to teach hard chargin’ young dudes and I am blessed and honored to be in that position.
The Where I Stand page was written in a flurry one night after good convos with CR and Soon-Ah. Neither of them buy all of my bullshit (or even most of it) but it helps me gain clarity to write it down.
Steve’s Search is my friend Steve’s outlook on the transition from living on the gov’t teat to a lot more freedom and uncertainty.
Run Climbs & Times I like to run. I like to compete. Do you?
Enjoy it all, and write if you’d like: my name @ gmail.com
