Welcome to Brain Food.

Floating somewhere between art, philosophy, science, and literature, Brain Food provides five minutes of inspiration in your inbox.

Each post is a handpicked selection of a new idea, for people with little time who want to live and think better.

“One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and, if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I write Brain Food in my spare time, somewhere between sleep and consciousness. It is a combination of all things I find stimulating within the realms of philosophy, art, literature, and psychology, a synthesis of ideas resulting in short thought snippets that can be devoured in less than five minutes.

It has been around for more than three years, so, according to the Lindy effect, it should be around for at least three years more.

You can read more about the origins of Brain Food, and the value of side hustles, in my Medium post. And if you are curious, you can join hundreds of others and subscribe for free today.
