DUCK POND



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

NOT YET THE ENDwmmbb2016-03-18-ernie-at-99-years-old

Sun, 12 Feb 2017 12:57:33 +0000

At some point at the road of an individual’s life unfurls, there is the realization that the planning horizon has closed in. That may be a very selfish moment, or the culmination of long term selfishness. Other people may inherit a world that will sustain their lives and fulfil their humanity, but that beggars belief […](image)

Invasion Day 2017wmmbb

Mon, 30 Jan 2017 13:09:31 +0000

The days race along. Last week it was so-called Australia Day on 26 January. New Year was but a few weeks previously. Still the dogs go out most days. The thing about Invasion Day, as it is constituted, is that it gives rise to reflection. How could people be so dismissively dispossessed and subject to […](image)

Christmas Day 2016wmmbb

Mon, 26 Dec 2016 13:09:33 +0000

As we are reminded every year the celebration of Christmas has pagan associations. It suggests to me that much of the population of Western Europe were nominally Christian and that folk traditions were remembered and continued, especially at the periphery. Arguably,in that sense, not much has changed Nonetheless, Christmas was a long and full day. […](image)

“The Urgency of Now”wmmbb

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 12:47:33 +0000

The election of Donald Trump to become in due course the American President is an extraordinary development. Given the campaign, he made a gracious acceptance of Hillary Ciinton’s phone call acknowledging defeat.As far as I know she has not made a public announcement. One question is how could the Democrats lose given the superiority of […](image)

Dog Blog: Start Againwmmbb

Sat, 29 Oct 2016 12:31:01 +0000

It was an form of eclipse, I suppose. A person sees the doctor and then drives to work. Parks her car and then its knocked down by a car while walking across the road. Motor vehicles in these circumstances are malign. There are broken bones and a head injury. While not at first recognized, it […](image)

Dog Blog: Random Photoswmmbb

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 18:02:41 +0000

  Some memories are clear. Some are not. I remember the Latin inscription under the clock at school, Tempus Fugit. It turns out that time does fly. The more recent to take time and not rush despite the demands sometimes placed over us. By making a random selection of photos, I am attempting to compress […](image)

Eight Weeks and Eight Dayswmmbb

Mon, 11 Jul 2016 11:01:42 +0000

The election ran for eight weeks, and then the count took days to sort out who had a bare majority in the House of Reps to form the government. I tired of being told seemingly endlessly that the 76 members represented an absolute majority. The result cannot be confirmed. It is not clear whether the cross […](image)

Dog Blog: Bi-weekly Reviewwmmbb

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 14:52:56 +0000

The weeks slip by. Dexter and Hannah go out on many days, and sometimes recently too late. This means I have to get the torch out to come safely down the embankment. My memory fades from day to day and the photos help. Ask me what I did two weeks ago and I wouldn’t have […](image)

BREXIT: Done And Dusted?wmmbb

Sat, 25 Jun 2016 16:34:47 +0000

My reaction to the apparent decision to exit the European Union was surprise. Can this really be happening? Greece came to mind. They had a referendum and then the leadership of Syriza folded. I never understood why you would hold a referendum and get over 60% support and then say in effect we will accept […](image)

Dog Blog: Winter Arriveswmmbb

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 13:56:42 +0000

The endless summer was followed by chilly nights, and now we are dealing with the east coast low, a weather system extending from Queensland to Tasmania bringing heavy rain and stormy seas. It was the case that we had rain last week, but not enough for the creek to flow from one day to next. […](image)
