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.
Enjoy it all, and write if you’d like: my name @ gmail.com
