Week 51/2021: living in fear

Week 51/2021: Week of 20 December 2021 Living in fear: Rambling at 2 am because I can’t sleep I see the term “living in fear” a lot at the moment. Attributed to various people in the media and in comments on social media posts, it’s used in association with...

Week 50/2021: writing it all down

Week 50/2021: Week of 13 December 2021 Writing it all down This week was very much a continuation of last week. I hated this week as much, if not more than last week. This week the Tasmanian government reopened the borders to interstate travellers, which brought a lot of...

Week 48/2021: the heat is on
