GM SIMON WILLIAMS is a wild one is he not? He’s “on” most of the time and it’s a good thing he is 37 or 38 because he’s busy. I was going to say I used to be insanely busy like that but I stopped for a few seconds and reflected and realized, “I pretty much still am!”
But nowadays I believe in the power of a NAP, that thing where one goes horizontal for an amount determined by you. For me it is anywhere from 20 min. to an hour. When I get up, the ideas come to life and I feel great all over again. It works.
To enliven you I picked out a Simon Williams YouTube video–he has several hundred of them. On this one he is determined to beat whoever he plays but he gets annoyed when he keeps getting a “coaching call” from Magnus Carlsen! Hilarious.
Tune in for some fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9dPzrIJizes&t=2055s
That’s it for now. If you want to sign up for the event (chess festival) this year drop a line to: firstname.lastname@example.org because we are hosting the “Maniac from England,” Simon Williams, August 18-20.
