I haven’t been watching the swell charts lately. So I was happy for a decent pulse at my favourite local beach break. It was a blowing cross/onshore mostly – perfect for the mat!
For me, this is one of the most beautiful pieces of music I’ve ever heard. I first heard AWVFTS one afternoon listening to the JK Ensemble on Lyric FM during an afternoon commute. My uncle gave me their CD at a family get together some months later and It’s been a part of me since! We both saw them live last February in Dublin – sublime stuff.
Myself and the pooch had a rare few hours to ourselves this afternoon. I could have come up with any number of reasons to just hang about the house. No swell about so we took a walk “up town”. Cup of tea to go from the local shop and we walked by the river. Ended up watching fish jumping in the still water while Billy tried to find flies and birds to chase. I wonder if a Tenkara setup would be a goer here?
Colemak. It’s a keyboard layout that is more efficient than QWERTY, due to the decreased distances that your fingers travel whilst typing. However, I’m typing this with a QWERTY keyboard layout as Colemak is a little frustrating for me right now! I’m not fast at touch typing at present, so I reckon Colemak is worth a shot for me.
Blogging. I’m giving this a shot too. I reckon I can post some photos and even a trip report of our recent trip to Chicago. This photo was taken on The Ledge at the Sears Tower. I’m slightly off centre and theres no solid ground beneath me. Pretty accurate!
