Logbook 31 Dec. 2017 – Early morning in a Seven – eleven

Last day of 2017 thoughts

Started out early long before dawn on foot, walking through Copenhagen in the winter darkness, stopped by a Seven-Eleven with cheep coffee and chairs where a few homeless people were hanging out. I wished them happy new year, know a few of them a bit from my walks around Copenhagen. I like the place, come here from time to time very early in the morning and sit drinking coffee and watching people, while thinking through my day. Today is a bit special, it is the last day of 2017. Take out my laptop and start writing:

Every day is a strange kind of step…

“It is better to take many small steps in the right direction than to make a great leap forward only to stumble backward.”

(Old Chinese Proverb)
