I love the stuff Merlin Mann says, be it a blog post, podcast or video of a talk at a conference.
They always come across as such well thought out sentences which he’s only just thought of. Genius.
Watching his talk at webstock was truly moving, when he mentioned about being scared when his dad died I seriously couldn’t stop crying. I’m in the same situation right now.
It’s coming up to a year since my dad died, and I’m totally shitting myself as the one year on date nears. Maybe it’s because even though I have no idea what ‘getting my head over it’ is, feels I’ve not even scratched the surface of what feeling better is. I dunno, I should of got my head round it all after a year, right?
God I feel tired!
Off topic so lets reign this in a bit, a lot of the things within his talk hit home for me. Specially about just continuing to run through the shit storm no matter how scared you are.
* It’s been almost a week since I watched the video and I’ve put off writing this for no reason other than being scared. I’ll re-watch it and edit this post to better reflect other aspects of the talk
