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.
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.
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!
Hello and welcome back my friends! It’s 17:50 on Sunday, October 10, 2021 as I write this. We have just returned from the most amazing spring break in one of our favourite spots. I’m relaxing on the sofa, with GOU #3 to my right doing what little digital natives do. Figure 1: Beach run on Lappiesbaai at low tide is as great as it looks. I’m not sure when exactly this post will be done, but whatever the case may be, it samples, extremely sparsely as always, the period of time from Monday September 27 to Sunday October 10, 2021.
Figure 1: GOU#1 living her best life at in the Betty’s Bay water at dusk, accompanied by spectaculour colours. Welcome friends to this, the 233d edition of the Weekly Head Voices, covering the two weeks from Monday September 14 to Sunday September 26, 2021. (Don’t) Stress for success (aka 4000 weeks at 60%) It’s really quite busy at work, perhaps even verging on the slightly too busy territory. I’m consistently putting in stretches of focused, high intensity work to help push us into calmer waters.
Figure 1: View from a park not too far from my house. Welcome back friends to WHV #232, looking back at the two weeks from Monday August 30 to Sunday September 13, both fortunately in the year 2021. Give me some more of that mRNA I’m happy to report that I got my second Pfizer shot at the start of this month, at the Somerset West Town Hall. The whole procedure took 30 minutes, from when I entered the front door, until I exited after the 15 minute wait in the side-effect area with friend LM, at which point I unfortunately jammed my shoulder on an inconveniently positioned aloe branch, an event that under normal circumstances would not even have been worth a mention, were it not for the fact that I was wearing my fortunately entry-level puffer jacket, which now sports a gash with stuffing peeking out.
Figure 1: View from Watsonia (Helderberg) “run” with bestie DW This edition of the WHV looks back at the two weeks from Monday August 16 to Sunday August 29, 2021. Orbital mechanics that are important to me Sowehere during this period, I completed yet another full orbit around the sun. That’s quite a bit more egocentric than I intended. Let me try again: Thanks to family and friends and good fortune, my existence continued for another complete revolution of the planet Earth around the star Sol.
Figure 1: During the West Coast sunset worshipping ritual I turned around and entirely coincidentally saw this picture waiting there for me. (We’re sitting off to the left on the stoep.) I love the photo, but then started to wonder if it had a bit too much of “I just did a photography course and now I have to make photos like this” (I didn’t and I don’t). My friends have assured me that it does not look like that (too much).
Figure 1: A scene from a short but surprisingly balmy weekend in Betty’s Bay (In Winter, a large part of Betty’s remains permanently in the shadow of the mountain.) This edition of the WHV looks back at the week from Monday July 19 to Sunday July 25, 2021, a week of untold wonders and intense enjoyment, a week deserving of the hallowed title of… STAYCATION! Jokes aside, it was a perfectly enjoyable week of time off, most of it spent at home or close to it.
Figure 1: On the side opposite to Map of Africa, on the grass that shall not be entered if one is not a club member. This edition of the Weekly Head Voices, number two tenny eight, covers the period of time from Monday June 28 to Sunday July 18 of the year 2021. Bad glitch in the South African matrix Although I don’t have much to say here (hence the title), the country has been all over the news for less than great reasons.
