Context Is...
The Title of a Book

“To become a proper writer, you have to forgive yourself for the catastrophe of the first draft.” —Alain de Botton

Context is an Intro


To index lessons learned and help others to find their context in life.


Cultivate a space of knowledge management useful to those looking to improve, among other things, in the art of self-effacement. Or something like that.


Demonstrate the follies and forthcoming lessons from showing ego, hopefully in a manner that is comically witty and mildly self-deprecating at worst.

Context is a Journey

The chart above is a visualization of the essays produced since this project began.

The blue bars reflect the number of essays produced, based on the left vertical axis.

The red and yellow lines indicate the word count produced at the time and cumulatively.

Below are links to associated essays that will be used as context for what will one day be a book.

For now, it is what makes up this site's content.

Context is Free

All content is free because, to be cheesy and quote Isaac Newton:

“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants”. 

If I have gotten anywhere in life, it is by the help and contributions of others.

May the context I have to give be a foundation with which for you to find a context to call your own.
