Weekend 399.0 (Holding hands while the walls come tumbling down)

I think ‘Weekend Post 400.0’ needs to be something spectacular but I’m getting a little ahead of myself. I’ve been busy mining bitcoins¹ and helping my friend grieve after his beloved seagulls were promoted to the top flight (hence the lack of posts). I get oodles of spam about LIMESTONE but always ‘legitimate’ requests for […]

Weekend 391.1

Is it someplace real? I think so. It’s called the Golden Valley, I believe. Somewhere special? In a way. It was on our nursery wall when I was a child. I didn’t know it was a real place then. I thought it was a view of heaven. Oh, the promised land. I used to think […]

Weekend 390.0 (“Come on, let’s drive across to the Palisades”)

“…when you are stuck, with nothing in your head but your memories, and memories of memories, which form a map, some more recent than others, some about music, which you can almost hear, smashed into the spilling sounds of the segmented, centre-less city below, a vast imaginary landscape waiting to be discovered, about how you […]
