DUCK POND



A micro world of emergent clarity with much confusion and furious paddling beneath the surface.

Once More October is Overwmmbb

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 10:44:53 +0000

As November gets underway, looking back at October and the months before, it is hard to remember how dry it was. Now we have teeming rain, hail, thunder and lightning and the grass is green. Historically October was memorable. It marked respectively the 500 th anniversary of Martin Luther’s  95 theses on the door of […](image)

Sound and Fury for What?wmmbb

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 14:15:09 +0000

We have been afflicted with the Postal Survey. While I duly posted the envelopes and forms, I had no dealing with the opinion they carried – although I have a reliable advice of what that was. Some weeks later, we had delivered to our letterbox the condensation of the argument for the No case from […](image)

Final Days in Septemberwmmbb

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 12:06:27 +0000

I have forgotten when we last had rain. It seems there were record falls in March. July, August and September, at least to my recollection, have been without rain. And that means we might expect bush fires, and we should have a plan to meet that contingency. While it can always be said, but nonetheless […](image)

Days of Augustwmmbb

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 12:14:12 +0000

August, was to me, one of the coldest that I have ever experienced. Overall, the Bureau of Meteorology reports: The 2017 winter was the hottest since 1910 when national records began, according to Bureau of Meteorology figures released today. The average maximum daily temperature recorded across all Australian recording locations for June, July and August […](image)

Last Days of Julywmmbb

Wed, 02 Aug 2017 17:05:20 +0000

I was walking a few kilometers every day. I thought I was going OK. Dexter and Hannah express disappointment if I do not take them out. Then I was undermined what I thought at the time would be a critical injury. I seemed to tear my knee and the muscles. I had difficulty getting out […](image)

Walking for Life!wmmbb

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 12:41:39 +0000

There are two separate realms of concern and at times failure of intuition, especially in relation to dogs and to human beings. There seems to be agreement that walking is good for dogs and for humans. A general  view is: “dogs need to walk for exercise and mental stimulation“. The human interaction can be both […](image)

Goodbye Junewmmbb

Sun, 02 Jul 2017 16:18:29 +0000

June is gone for this year. Next year she is due to return. The Earth keeps turning, which is gives us the opportunity, at least as a species, to look ahead and consider the record of the past. Dexter and Hannah, as dogs concentrate on the present. Their heads are closer to the ground and […](image)

Kicking the Earth – Another Weekly Dog Blogwmmbb

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 15:28:11 +0000

I know what it is like to kick the earth, or at least a piece of wood. I thought my toe would never recover. I looked around, of course, for someone to blame and there were two dogs pulling on the lead. I bit my tongue in the metaphoric sense, and kept walking. The reference […](image)

Dog Blog – Moments Gonewmmbb

Fri, 16 Jun 2017 15:39:53 +0000

Life is transient and apparently effervescent. As humans, like other animals, we well designed for life’s practicalities. Dexter and Hannah do not worry about such things. They just live their lives. It is easy just to quote from Wikipedia: The title of the song is a Bible reference, paraphrasing Ecclesiastes:[4] “ I reflected on everything […](image)

June Resumptionwmmbb

Fri, 09 Jun 2017 16:50:34 +0000

Both Dexter and Hannah are as right as the rain now falling, but for April and May the photo record of their jaunts (or walks) have not been realized, although photos were taken. The fact is there are too many photos. The walks are an important part of their routine. Hopefully walking may be working […](image)
