What I’m Up To Now

Inspired by Derek Sivers, this page includes a bit of what I’m working on and thinking about right now.


We’re at the end of Ramadan, the final weeks of the Spanish state of alarm due to coronavirus, and the beginning of spring now.

My time has been spent waking up for suhoor, reading in the hammock, blogging more, taking Alqo for a walk, and eating a bigger meal for iftar. I don’t think I’ll ever have a consistent writing practice and I’m beginning to accept this. As as the weather becomes warmer, I just to be outside as much as possible.

We’re about to enter fase dos of our deescalation. That means we can move freely around Ourense province, keep social distancing, maybe eat at a restaurant terrace, and see friends from a distance. We have to fix a side mirror and pass ITV, which expired during the quarantine, and we’ll be cleared for some road trips in the Ourensan Ribeira Sacra. These nomads been cooped up too long.

I’m also digging taking ephemeral photos of nothing in particular using Vooravo, with its 90s-aesthetic filters and timestamp.


I’m teaching five or six classes a day, but now I take Tuesdays and Wednesdays off instead of just Tuesdays. It’s nice to have a full weekend.

I’m also working on a redesign of a Spanish NGO’s website using GeneratePress, GenerateBlocks, and the Gutenberg block editor for WordPress. With this theme (its premium version) and plugin, I can accomplish everything I could with a page builder like Divi. And as a bonus, I can work on them using my iPad.
