Weeknotes 17: to where do you hurry?

  1. We moved house last week. It was busy. I did not write any weeknotes.

    We’ve moved in with another couple. We decided to consciously open ourselves up to living in more of a house-community rather than just as a couple by ourselves. It’s early days obviously but I’m feeling positive about this change. I’m also loving that I now live in a part of Melbourne with fewer cars and less concrete, not far from the Merri Creek, and with a garden! 🌳

  2. Ok, some nerd talk: I’ve been appreciating SitePrism recently, which helps you use page objects in Capybara tests. It takes a bit of getting used to, but really helps improve test readability and maintainability I think.

  3. In the midst of the move we squeezed in going to the opening night of the Melbourne Spoken Word & Poetry Festival (we’d actually booked it before deciding to move house). There were many good acts but I was blown away by Arielle Cottingham – I couldn’t find a video of her performance on the night but here’s one from 2016.

  4. While we’re on poetry, I found this one the other day: The Tree Speaks by John Englezos. It’s quite beautiful.

    Sweet human, to where do you hurry?
    Stop, even for a moment
    Cease your storming
    Peace, be still
    Sit at the foot of me
    Hide in my shade
    Rest and sink in
    Rest until you can stand again


I'd love to hear from you here instead of on corporate social media platforms! You can also contact me privately.
