Scribbles

My scribbles represent my worldview and attitude toward individual matters. I review books, relate them to other interesting resources, rant on annoyances of everyday life, and revisit moments significant to my personal development. And You are invited to read them, taking whatever useful you find in them. Reactions or points of discussion are also welcome; feel free to get in touch via e-mail me@mattved.com or any of the contact details shown in the page footer!
