I started the week by writing about which book I am reading at the moment, The Book of Gosport, just reading the first couple of chapters have given me ideas for a couple of videos, and I don’t doubt there will be more. Since Monday night, reading the book has not happened because the current issue of country walking arrived. I vowed that these four magazines that I subscribe to I would read cover to cover as quickly as possible after they have arrived. I expect the next magazine, B&W photography will turn up next week.
On Tuesday, I looked at the issue I have doing historical research, now really I am probably doing a level of research that would equate to at most an O’Level or GCSE (it’s nice to think I have an overseas reader, America apparently has no direct equivalent to GCSE, and it is not at Diploma level, which is more equivalent to A Level). The problem I have is that when I read about something, I want to know what or who caused that, so I go and read about that, which has its own trigger event. Where do I start/stop?
For the first time in a while, my walking was affected by weather. It rained all day, too heavy for me to go for a walk. That meant I lost my usual 5 miles of walking for the walk 1000 challenge, but it’s OK from a weekly goal, I’m there and still have Sat and Sun to go.
Thursday saw me rambling on about photography in particular the surprise picture of day is the I took of the shop window, which was a “what the heck” moment, but as usual, for some reason I like the admittedly slightly cropped end result.
And then there is tonight, my suggested topic for a Friday night, which was to write about…writing, which given that I had spent 5 minutes looking at the screen thinking about what to write. Not too bad.
As I write this, I’m watching a YouTube clip by Dr. Becky, she’s an astrophysicist, and is talking about doing Astro photography with your phone. I think its a clear sky – I might go and have ago.
