When trying to learn or master a new skill, failure is the best teacher.

Tasting successes early on has the risk of building overconfidence or delusion. Failing early on enables us to examine the effort and improve the next time around.

Loss should not be seen as a personal defeat but rather as a learning opportunity.

The Sirens imploring Ulysses to stay

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
― T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets

Here I am again, still trying to make sense of blogging again.

My dissatisfaction with what social media promised at the start and what it has become now is why I’m trying to start writing again on my own site.

The advantage of owning your domain is that it is an eternal sandbox that you can always play with. You can build it up or raze it down to rebuild.

I’m not sure of how long this will remain or when I decide to refresh again. But then again, I’m considering it a new start for the new year and let’s see where this odyssey leads. And I hope I can resist the sirens call of social media and use this more.
