Week 36/2021: Week of 6 September 2021 What did I want to do better this week? Be more mindful and observant, and start to develop my capacity to explore. So, how did that go then? I guess this a learning game, right? 21 for 2021 update Vegetable of the...

21 for 2021: week 13

Week 13/2021: week of 29 March 2021 This week, I started the last of the five habits in chapter 7 of the Change Journal (thing 4). This habit relates to a challenge I’ve started this month with Trina O’Gorman to write for at least 15 minutes every day. Trina...

Week 3/21: week of 18 January 2021 21 for 2021 update Some time ago I was chatting to my GP about getting older and how I want to make sure I stay as healthy as I can for as long as I can. I said one thing I’ve always...

21 for 2021: a new list and an update

Week 53: week of 28 December 2020I’m not sure if the last week of the year was week 53 of 2020 or week 1 of 2021. Or if was both. Or if it really matters. (My Travelers Notebook 2021 diary tells me it was week 53 of 2020 and...

20 for 2020: week 30

Week of 20 July My 20 for 2020 list. In my quest to find a regular time to sit down and focus on my creative work for longer than 10 or 15 minutes snatched here and there, I thought Tuesday afternoons might be a good time. Except for the...

Week of 1 April After my massive week of achievements in week 13, I wasn’t anywhere near as productive in week 14 with my 19 for 2019 list. In fact, I can count the things I progressed on one hand. One finger, even. Status for week 14 Things completed...

Book 7/24: One Magic Square

I’ve had this book, One Magic Square: Grow your own food on one square metre by Lolo Houbein, on my bookshelf for several years. I bought it because the concept of being able to grow food by starting small, in a one metre by one metre square, appealed to...

Book 6/24: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle

I’ll start this post with a confession: I’ve never read any of Barbara Kingsolver’s novels, although I’ve long been intrigued by titles like The Poisonwood Bible and Pigs In Heaven. I first saw this book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life on Instagram, where one of my...
