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.
Weekly Head Voices #242: Multiplicity of me
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.
Weekly Head Voices #241: Best intentions
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.
Weekly Head Voices #240: I am just a copy of a copy of a copy
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.
Weekly Head Voices #239: Embarrassing finitude
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.
Weekly Head Voices #238: Live deep and suck out all the marrow of life
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.
Weekly Head Voices #237: Don't step over the thing
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.
The 2021 to 2022 transition post
Welcome to 2022 everyone, and to this, the traditional yearly year transition post! Figure 1: Sunset rock in St Francis on December 28, 2021, close to the end of the main event. I thought it was the latest ever, but it turns out that that honour goes to 2014 (which had a really good excuse to appear only in March) and 2015 (no real excuse). Much later, on Sunday January 23: It could very well still win the Most Fragmented Ever, but at least now it’s done.
Weekly Head Voices #236: The surprising power of consistent chipping
This 236th edition of the Weekly Head Voices looks back at the three (sorry!) weeks from Monday October 25 to Sunday November 14, 2021. What will the beholder think? First things first: Do you notice something different about me I mean my blog? I don’t know how most readers respond to this sort of a thing, but I can really appreciate, in a non-professional way of course, good typography on a personal blog.
Weekly Head Voices #235: Speed silvers
Welcome to the 235th edition of the (secretly bi-)Weekly Head Voices! This one looks back at the period from Monday October 11 to Sunday October 24, 2021. Figure 1: None of my outdoors photos satisfied the WHV guidelines, and so now you get this collage. Notable here are the two artworks by GOU #2. It looks like she has discovered one of her blisters. (Yet Another) New Keyboard #YANK You might remember my previous semi-accidental keyboard acquisition, namely the Keychron K1 with low profile brown, no I mean red!
