Work, work, work

I recently read Horrorstor by Grady Hendrix, who is now officially my new favourite writer and one of the many great things about this shamefully short novel was how he had incorporated one of the most notorious evil slogans in human history into his story. The slogan was Work shall set you free and I don’t need to tell you why it’s as notorious as it is. Continue reading Work, work, work

A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 5-11

It has been quite a busy week and not just with walking the cat on a leash because this is how he gets his fresh air now, since he can’t be trusted with complete freedom yet. This will change in June but for now, it’s walks on a leash, like some sub-cat life form. What goes around comes around. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: April 5-11

A Profound Look Back at the Week: March 29-April 4

When we packed up to come to the country I looked forward to two weeks of fresh-air, close-to-nature bliss. Could I have been any more wrong? Possibly, if we had two cats instead of one. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: March 29-April 4

A Profound Look Back at the Week: February 1-7

The first week of an unusually neat month (starts Monday, end Sunday) was not particularly eventful but it ended with a supernice trip out of town, so I’m having another PLBW in pictures. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: February 1-7

A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 20-26

Isn’t it fun that while we’re panting with the heat up here in the northern hemisphere, children in the southern one just had their winter break? Oh, and did you know that Australian schools have four instead of two terms? Well, you probably do if you are Australian, but I didn’t until I googled it. Fascinating. This is what I call a strong start to the blog. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: July 20-26

A Profound Look Back at the Week: June 15-19

Summer is upon us, finally, although I’m not sure why I say “finally” since I wasn’t exactly looking forward to the heat. But I was kind of looking forward to the sun because even my love for rain has its limits. Well, it’s here, the sun. And the heat. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: June 15-19

A Profound Look Back at the Week: June 8-12

The most profound this that happened this week was us going for a walk in the forest above the village, so I’m doing this week’s profound look back in pictures. No comment. Just pictures. Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: June 8-12

A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 18-22

Summer is on the way, beaches are being opened and closed again because apparently people are flocking there with no regard for social distancing, and the school year in my part of the world is finally drawing to a close. We’re settling into the new normal. Or are we? Continue reading A Profound Look Back at the Week: May 18-22
