Totems

Thursday 31st October 2019, 9.40am (day 2,989)

Totem and laptop, 31/10/19

Back home — at least for a day. It’s Halloween but I don’t really go for The Festival of Cheap Plastic Tat. I did have a couple of online classes to run however, so I let my totem make an appearance. Perhaps the Mac is also a totem — or a familiar? It’s certainly hard to weave any magic without it, these days.

Bone cave

Bone cave, 16/7/19

Even less happened today than for the last two days, although this short period of purdah will end tomorrow. Isolation at home forced me to find subjects from the stuff around the house, like this — I mean, everyone has horned sheep skulls on their bedroom window sill, right?

Emptying the shelves

Sunday 17th March 2019, 11.50am (day 2,761)

Empty shelves, 17/3/19

There was excitement to the day, but this came courtesy of Brighton & Hove Albion FC coming from 2-0 down with two minutes to go and still go through at Millwall in the FA Cup quarter-final; but the only photographic record of it is a selfie of me looking worryingly manic, so I will spare you that. Not much else to show however; we are clearing out the bedroom (not easy in a house with very limited spare space) in preparation for decorating it, and the unusually empty shelves are the best I can do. The film books still remained to be packed as of this morning, but they’ve gone now. The sheep skulls have not…

It’s about time my annual contribution to the house’s Christmas decorations made the blog.

Herbs and skull, 4/7/17

Feels like a while since I have spent any proper time at home, with its indoor herb garden, its dust bunnies, its strange collection of bits of dead animal.

Our window sill

Tuesday 3rd January 2017, 2.00pm (day 1,958)

Sheep skulls, 3/1/17

Our window sill, and indeed our house generally, contain more pieces of deceased sheep than most people would consider normal. Souvenirs from a few Lakeland walks….

A little something I picked up yesterday

Wednesday 11th March 2015, 7.50pm (day 1,294)

Sheep skull, 11/3/15

Always nice to have some kind of memento of a good day out. In five and a half years of tramping the fells of the Lake District on a regular basis, I have come across six intact sheep’s skulls including this one from yesterday: but none of the others had horns as spectacular as this one. I think I’ll hang this one from the front door to deter canvassers.

Deer skulls

Deer skulls, 6/8/14

I see no reason to explain this shot. It’s just an image I liked.

Shelfie

Shelfie, 2/2/14

God I’m bored. Someone get me out of this house. Meanwhile, here is a picture of our shelf, which I’m sure has enormous source material for the (pro or amateur) psychologist, or indeed, just the person who’s curious about my CD collection.

Mother and son, Hallowe’en

Wednesday 31st October 2012, 7.15pm (day 433)

Hallowe'en, 31/10/12

I don’t really do Hallowe’en myself, but others do, and it’s a good photo opportunity at least. Like, for this tender mother-and-son shot. Aren’t they cute.
