Week 52/2021: the last week of the year

Week 52/2021: Week of 27 December 2021 The last week of the year I had a break from work this week, which was beyond nice. It meant I didn’t have to go out. If you’ve been following along these past few weeks you’ll know that I’ve not been in...

Another new year

Before the day begins, before most people are out, the sky continues to change as it has done forever. The terms beginning and end are meaningless here as is, I suppose, the term day. These words are human constructs to mark the passage of time, which, to our thinking,...

Week 44/2021: i’m not listening

Week 44/2021: Week of 1 November 2021 I’m not listening I felt better this week than I did last week and finally went to see my physio needle massage therapist (I’m not sure that this is his official job, but it works for me.) He had been in the...

Week 34/2021: observe

Week 34/2021: Week of 23 August 2021 What did I want to do better this week? Walking. Mornings and afternoons. So, how did that go then? I went for a walk every morning and every afternoon except Monday. I’m counting walks that have an actual purpose as well as...

Week 25/2021: Week of 21 June 2021 What did I want to do better this week? Shut down and go to bed earlier. Get more sleep. So, how did that go then? In my post about the book Spacemaker, I said that I’d decided to introduce a daily pause,...

Week 17/2021: week of 26 April 2021 I  had a lovely day out with my sister and her friend at Mt Field National Park on Saturday, which was great because I could forget all about my to-do list and concentrate on  not rolling my injured ankle clambering over large...

Tahune airwalk

Seven years ago, we went to the Tahune airwalk, which is in southern Tasmania, just out of Geeveston. It’s part of a site known as Tahune Aventures and I wrote a post about the 2015 trip here. Sadly, the area was badly affected by the Riveaux Road bushfires in...
