About

Hello, my (pen) name is John Doe and I write here pseudo-anonymously.

About how I understand the world and my place in it:

East: No-Self West: Self South: Feel the world North: Think the world

Most people believe North-West is the centre of the World.

I was born in the South-West but educated by Northerners; my spiritual teacher came from the East.

What I try to remember every single day: Memento mori.

My favourite Dutch proverb: “Doe maar gewoon, dan doe je al gek genoeg”

I would like to die standing up and with as few regrets as possible.


This blog evolves more or less chaotically. It started with a (still ongoing) personal experiment about negativity for which I'm using the #100DaysToOffload challenge as a framework. However, I neither publish a post every day nor write in the context of that experiment only.

I write about what I observe, think and feel in my everyday life, nothing special. I don't stick to specific topics or keep a strict posting schedule.

Most of the posts are written in English, some in #Spanish.

Many fellows add blogrolls to their site, so, here is mine.

If you want, you can send me an email to write.as.monkey[at]protonmail.com. I'll be happy to read from you.
