A combination of recommendations, observations, and personal updates

“My cynicism is just the scar tissue over wounds inflicted by my optimism’s many battles with reality.”
Welcome back.
This is a quick one. You might remember that I said about cycling that I am surprised how much I can torture myself on the bike. Well, turns out I can also actually hurt myself. Twice within the last two months, I pedaled a bit too hard and got sick for a week each time. Well, I know my limits much better now. I’m also still recovering from the winter depression.
So the last weeks were all about taking it a bit slower. But with the sun out in Berlin and lots of walks, I’m feeling much better now. My cycling training is picking up again and my concentration is coming back. 
In the meantime, some great articles and essays have been piling up in my Instapaper queue. I’ll be back soon with more. 
Take care of yourselves (really, you should listen to Warren).
