"if being angry at wrongdoing is proper for a wise man, then the greater the wrongdoings, the greater his anger will be, and he will be angry often; it follows that the wise man will not only experience anger, he will be wrathful by disposition."

- Seneca, On Anger 2.6.3


"a limit on anger cannot exist if anger must be felt in proportion to each person’s behavior: either you will be unjust, if you feel the same degree of anger for different degrees of wrongdoing, or you will be angry in the extreme, if you feel anger’s full heat as often as misdeeds merit wrath."

- Seneca, On Anger 2.6.4


"If you want the wise man to be as angry as the unworthiness of the crimes demands, he must become not angry but insane."

- Seneca, On Anger 2.9.4

For the first time in decades we have a proper tv in our holiday home so I have been spending some time today rewatching parts of a handful of things I remember from the 70s - sitting in the very same sofa where I watched all of those classics originally :-) See if you can identify them. Only one is Danish.

Forty (or forty-one) years ago. My sister, my grandmother, me and my oldest kid brother picking wild raspberries in the forrest.

Nå. Efter tre forgæves ansøgninger til Google+ Create siden projektet blev introduceret i 2015, skrev Google så selv pludselig og inviterede mig med. Mig bekendt er der dermed i alt to danskere med i projektet - så jeg er beæret :-) Og bestemt også meget mere motiveret. Men jeg mangler stadig at knække konverteringskoden. Den Collection, jeg primært lægger tid og energi i at vedligeholde, er min collection om såkaldt stoicisme - antik græsk og romersk tænkning om det lykkelige liv. Det emne er ganske meget i vælten i disse år. Bøger om antik og moderne stoicisme vælter frem - herhjemme fx Svend Brinkmanns "Stå fast" - og min collection om emnet har nu næsten 165.000 followers. Men det er meget abstrakt for mig, hvad det tal konkret betyder. Jeg oprettede for et halvt års tid siden en profil på Patreon, men har været lidt forsigtigt med at promovere den, så indtil nu har jeg kun 9 patreons, der tilsammen donerer $15 om måneden. Det er klart en begyndelse, men jo ikke meget ud af næsten 165.000 :-) Jeg er meget bevidst om, at det er supervigtigt vedholdende at nudge mine followers til at overveje at donere - men er også meget opsat på at gøre det på en måde, der styrker min troværdighed fremfor at underminere den.

Jeg har bestemt ikke ambitioner om at blive rig ved at blogge på Google+, men tænker, at godt 165.000 followers må kunne være udgangspunkt for en eller anden form for indtægt. Hvad tænker I?

Gribskov, Denmark. Probably the house I admire most in this area :-)

Gribskov, Denmark. Down to the left is a very beautiful, small lake which you can see several pictures of in this collection (eventually). At the end of the path is the road where our house lies. Close to our house is an old sawmill where I used to play as a kid. It has now been converted into horse stables. Horse riding is a huge thing in this part of Denmark :-)

It seems to me that we could all benefit from a tighter integration of G+ and Google Photos. For example, it would be nice to be able to have an option for sharing an album or any selection of images from Google Photos as a collection on G+ - or to share to a collection. That would save us a lot of work in creating or maintaining collections and, thus, remove barriers for creativity and engagement.
