Day Two at BlueDot festival - shorter this time due to low batteries (phone and brain!) I'll probably elaborate when we get home, things take time to percolate in my brain 🙂 View from the motor home window...is that a radio telescope I can see?! Oh yes, the mud CAN get worse... Is time travel … Continue reading A bluer dot
BlueDot music/science festival Day One: We arrived, in our hired motorhome (because there isn't a tent on Earth large enough for all of MY creature comforts) and the young woman who directed us where to park also asked if we had the usual, glass bottles...illicit drugs. Ok, my hair is a funny colour so I … Continue reading Hmmm, is that dot really blue?
Part One, Part Two and Part Three. Searching for the curious - Strangely enough, whilst looking for curiosity in others I have rediscovered some of it in myself, which makes me ridiculously happy. (I also find myself struggling to NOT judge people on their lack of curiosity...but that's an on-going woe for me that I … Continue reading Round up part four
Part One here and Part Two here. Avoiding Drama-Llamas and other assorted arseholes - I spoke up when I saw an injustice, stood up to be counted and creditted those around me...screw you arseholes. https://memegenerator.net/instance/74938545/drama-llama-crazy-welcome-to-team-drama-llama Pressing the keys - I have drawn, I have written, I haven't yet designed a more efficent tractor but it's … Continue reading Round-up part three
Part two of my ass kicking, self reminding and gentle prodding...Part one here Doing stuff you don’t wanna – along with reining in my ego (a bit) pausing to consider what the other people in the room might be expert on has caused me to also admit the possibility that things may end up going … Continue reading Next Round-up
On this random date, chosen for no reason other than convenience, I have decided to gift myself a round-up of all the tasks, objectives and missions I set myself since starting this blog. This is also to kick my own ass on the stuff I have let slip, either I let them go completely (and … Continue reading Round-up
There are some writers so great and generous that they can change the way you see the world, they can open up possibilities and alter the very way you think. The best part is that YOU get to decide which writers are great. When you stumble upon a true great you give them the power … Continue reading Comfort Reading
A while ago I heard about a spat between two artists. Anish Kapoor had been granted exclusive rights to a sprayable version of a new paint. This paint was Vantablack, the blackest black ever. It absorbs so much light that things painted with it look like impenetrable voids. photo credit: Wikipedia The argument seems to … Continue reading Turning it around
I am breaking my blog-fast to thoroughly recommend Russian Doll on Netflix. I read that it takes a couple of episodes to get into, but I was pretty much hooked from moment one (although that may well not be the case with everyone, it is well worth sticking with). It is irreverent, full of swearing … Continue reading Blog-fast
I was recently summonsed for jury duty. It was a responsibility I took very seriously, as that is how I would want any juror of mine to behave, and it gave me a new perspective on how the justice system works (slowly…very, very slowly). There is a LOT of sitting around waiting for people to … Continue reading Denying boredom with literature.
