This, the 246th edition of the WHV, looks back at the longer-than-expected stretch of time between Monday August 8 and Sunday September 25 of the year 2022. Figure 1: A slightly alternative view from somewhere up along Platties. Disclaimer The later I get, the more difficult it becomes to put these things out. Although not that many people read them, it feels like expectations increase over time, and thus the barrier continues getting higher and higher.
WELL HELLO EVERYONE and welcome back to the Weekly Head Voices, edition #245 to be specific, looking back at the period of time from Monday July 25 to Sunday Aug 7, 2022. Figure 1: Scene from a walk after a delicious family Sunday lunch. In the spirit of full disclosure, I do seem to be going through a patch of mostly pretty “meh” WHV attempts. However, as they say, a badly written but published blog post is miles better than an unpublished blog post of any quality.
Welcome to Weekly Head Voices number 244, stretching from Monday June 20 to Sunday July 24, 2022. Winter, don’t call us, we’ll call you Shortly after the start of this period, June 21 to be exact, I was frankly and quite pleasantly surprised by the Southern Hemisphere winter solstice. This handy Time and Date website has more details, including but not limited to: The June solstice (winter solstice) in Cape Town is at 11:13 on Tuesday, 21 June 2022.
Welcome back friends, welcome back me! This WHV covers the multiple weeks from Monday May 23 to Sunday June 19, 2022. It is this late, because it has been super busy at work (and at home), and by the time that I get any sort of opportunity to write, I am often too tired to focus. I hope to say something about that a bit further down. Whatever the case may be, I am happy to be here now, focusing on this post draft right here.
This, the 242nd edition of the Weekly Head Voices, looks back at the weeks from Monday April 18 to Sunday May 22 of the year 2022. If you like backyard philosophy, you’re in the right place. Even if you only like bullet lists, you’re going to be ok. Figure 1: Photo by friend WvdL. Learning at the Burning There’s an unwritten rule that you should not make any life decisions for at least three weeks after the (Afrika)Burn.
Welcome back folks to the Weekly Head Voices! Edition 241 (this one) covers the four weeks from Monday March 21 to Sunday April 17 of the year 2022. This time, my excuse for being so late is our autumn vacation trip to Augrabies and the Kgalagagi Transfrontier park. The Knersvlakte-Augrabies-Kgalagadi-Calvinia vacation trip The super short summary is as follows: My extremely resourceful partner had managed to book a few nights in rest camps in Kgalagadi about a year ago.
Welcome back to another tri-weekly edition of the weekly head voices, looking back at the period of time from Monday February 28 to Sunday March 20. I’ve been so busy at work that I was unable to create a sufficient amount of the right sort of headspace to sit down and write a WHV, hence the gap of three weeks instead of one. I did spend a number of mental cycles (for the Nth time) thinking about alternative and more compact post formats that would in theory be more resilient to lack of time and headspace, but ironically there was not enough time and headspace to come to any sort of conclusion.
This edition of the Weekly Head Voices, number 239, looks back on the three weeks from Monday February 7 to Sunday February 27, 2022. Figure 1: Fiery sunset in Betty’s Bay. House gets more energy reserves In the first week of February, my house gained an additional 4.8kWh of lithium ion battery storage for a total of 11.8, so that we are able to harvest more of the copious amounts of sun in the summer.
Welcome everyone to the 238th edition of the Weekly Head Voices, this one covering the week from Monday, January 31 to Sunday, February 6, 2022. I would like to get you started with some flowers, after which there is a possibly boring bit about improving my keyboard, followed by a final bit with a quote which I think is a bit more than just a two-bit quote. Figure 1: Photo taken by GOU #1 at Vergelegen Wine Estate during a solidly Thing-level (see WHV #237) Sunday lunch with my inner inner circle.
Well hello there and welcome to the first Weekly Head Voices of the year 2022! Figure 1: So many penguins at Stone Point in Betty’s Bay. Where we usually pretend that a WHV covers a certain period of time since the previous one, this one will simply engage in some excessive but pretty skillful hand-waving and say that if you read it and the 2021 to 2022 year transition post, you should be more or less up to date with the state of this nation up to Sunday, January 30, 2022.
