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 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 43/2021: one of those weeks

Week of 25 October 2021 One of those weeks After our lockdown and a lovely day off last week, I was going to say things went more or less back to normal this week, but I don’t like the word normal and I’m trying to eliminate it from my...

Arising and falling away

A sunrise 28 October 2021 I could see a red glow in the sky when I went out for my walk, which told me that this morning I might like to walk to the beach. When I got there, I was surrounded by an intense display of red and...

Week 40/2021: a week off

Week 40/2021: Week of 4 October 2021 I didn’t have a focus area to do better in this week. It was week 2 of school holidays and I worked on Monday, then had the rest of the week off with Kramstable. I didn’t do much work on my 21...

19 for 2019: week 23 update

Week of 3 June: Sunday 9 June 2019 My work has been incredibly busy the last month. I have been putting in long hours, not taking proper breaks and not taking very good care of myself. I haven’t been walking, I haven’t been drinking enough water, I haven’t been...
