hg: About


Hello there. My name is Henry and this is my blog.

I write about simple things, like the joy of riding a bicycle, or my adventures at the local library, or the irrefutable benefits of cutlery. These are small stories that emerge from daily life.

My intention is to entertain so I try to keep things playful and light. If there is a deeper meaning, it’s that simple pleasures and everyday experiences are worthy of our appreciation and they might, in the end, prove to be enough.

New posts will be published every other Sunday.

Beyond the blog

Although my main aim is to produce a blog post every fortnight, I'm also working on a couple of side projects in the background.

I've been submitting guest articles to other websites, plus I'm starting to experiment with fiction. There might be some short stories to share with you soon, so stay tuned.

My reading list

Now to books. Not only are they a new-found pleasure of mine, they also have a profound impact on what I create. With each book I read, my outlook on the world shifts, new ideas are formed, and my writing style evolves.

So I want to share my reading list with you. Partly as a random tidbit that you can browse, but mainly because it serves as a kind of bibliography for my writing. Bon appétit.
