Hello Fall! 09-24-2022

Hello, Friends -

Happy Fall! I don’t know about you but I’m ready for some cooler weather. This week we crossed over the Autumnal Equinox for the year and that means change is in the air and darker days are right around the corner.

If you’re interested, I wrote a short post about the equinox and it’s spiritual significance to past (and present) cultures.

I also went down the rabbit hole of a note-taking system known as Zettelkasten. It’s a method made famous by a German sociologist and systems theorist named Niklas Luhmann.

I’ve been utilizing a modified digital version of the method for the past few months and find it helpful, however, I have a deep pull toward all things analog.

As such, I have purchased a few bunches of note cards and have begun to build out an analog slip-box to serve as my personal knowledge library for things I’m working on.

Two simple reasons I want to give analog a try: first, I want a tactile experience when working with thoughts and ideas. That’s hard to come by with digital tools.

Second, I want a physical representation of things that capture my attention and the ideas that result of my interaction with the physical slip-box.

Who knows if it will stick, but I’ve committed to giving it a shot for the next year or so. I’ll keep you posted.
