    Laba saruna ar Ovenu Vilsonu, lai gan šajā žurnālā ir bijušas arī labākas (pāris). Otrā daļa gana interesanta, bet interesantākais tajā bija raksts, kurā 12 pašpalīdzības grāmatu autoriem tiek uzdots vienkāršs jautājums - kas ir tā viņu īpašība, kuru viņi nav spējuši mainīt. 9 no autoriem ir vīrieši, un tikai 3 no viņiem spēja atzīt, ka viņiem ir kaut viena īpašība, ar ko viņi nelepojas vai ar kuru nākas pacīnīties. Pārējie kā atbildi sniedza vispārīgu īsāku vai garāku diršanu (pardon my French! Laba saruna ar Ovenu Vilsonu, lai gan šajā žurnālā ir bijušas arī labākas (pāris).

    Quanto me apercebi da existência desta publicação criei o oposto do recomendado pelo estoicismo. E em boa hora o fiz.

    I really, really enjoyed perusing this magazine, as it reflected many things that have been on my mind lately or happening in my life. Stoicism and the meditations have preoccupied my thoughts. Intentionality, frugality, so it was a happy coincidence (or synchronicity?) that Marcus Aurelius was featured in this issue.

(Talk of synchronicity...).

    Thoroughly enjoyed the entirety of this issue. I never expected Owen Wilson to be a bookish person, and reading his interview was really entertaining. Wonderful issue!

    First part is interview with Owen Wilson. I was never a fan, but was nicely surprised to find that he's such an avid reader. This one really felt like it was an interview with a reader who happened to be famous, not an interview with a celebrity with a weak connection to reading. The second part revolves around The Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor known for being a champion of Stoicism. I did not read The Meditations, but I just finished reading Seneca (also a stoic) so I was in First part is interview with Owen Wilson.

I did not read The Meditations, but I just finished reading Seneca (also a stoic) so I was in that head space. I really liked Seneca's On the Shortness of Life, I'm not sure if I can say the same for the Meditations, from just reading random bits of it in the Happy Reader. As always I enjoyed reading this beautiful looking magazine, though sometimes I wonder whether it's because of the paper and the print more than anything. They're so pretty to look at, so nice to the touch...

    The summer edition: Front half is an interview with Owen Wilson, the back half a series of articles themed around Marcus Aurelius’ Mediations...Odd bedfellows for sure...
