January 15th: Weekly Design Links

“If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn’t part of ourselves doesn’t disturb us.” ― Hermann Hesse, Demian

This new year has gotten off to a bit of a chaotic start for me. I’m pushing though, doing what I need to do and staying busy to keep my mind focused and on the task at hand. We all have times like this and I find that working helps me cope and feeling useful in spite of the movement around me. I’ve always got a few irons in the fire at any given moment. This is my normal. Right now, I’m getting these weekly links into your hands. I’ll figure out what to do next after.
