The temperature drops / to zero now, so they say / but there’s wine, and cheese.

Wind roars through the trees / memories of things destroyed / the fire crackles thrice.

The Sun, He is set. I shall do my best to ensure He returns tomorrow.

Interviewee didn’t call. I’m abandoning that appointment. I’ve filed the article. It’s now just 15 minutes until sunset, where I am.

via TweetDeck

Still. Waiting. Patiently. [Even though I want to be done with this recording so I can finish the article I said I’d finish.]

via TweetDeck

Waiting. Patiently.

About to record an interview with Yuval Ben-Itzhak, CTO of AVG, for the “Patch Monday” podcast and probably other stuff too.

@sylmobile Ah the presenter is Louise Maher. @veritychambers in photo editor at SMH who’s on the project but not speaking in the wireless.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

On now… ish.

via TweetDeck

RT @j_hutch: Mrs Higgins then? [Ha!]

via TweetDeck

No, I am not Missy Higgins. I am what comes after Missy Higgins. Beyond Missy Higgins. Surpassing Missy Higgins.

via TweetDeck

On hold for 666 ABC Canberra to talk a certain photo project thanks to @veritychambers &a@mpbowerswers. Live stream at http://arseh.at/7y9

@dahowlett Oh yes, if you go to the arseh.at website you’ll find instructions for various popular Twitter clients.

@dahowlett Thanks, Dennis. arseh.at is the work of @thepatus so kudos to him. I’m just one of its heavy users.

I’m on 666 ABC Canberra at 1535 AEST talking a photo project thanks to @veritychambers &a@mpbowerswers. Live stream at http://arseh.at/7y9

RT @no_filter_Yamba: Time to pray to May Gibbs :-) [No, time to pray to Barry Gibb http://youtu.be/I_izvAbh… surely?]

via TweetDeck

Back at Tea Tree Cottage. Don’t worry about those loud bangs, it’s just trees falling on the roof.

via TweetDeck

Gawd how can that boy be flouncing about wearing so little?

via TweetDeck

Ah the showers are starting. Definitely a cab back. But I have supplies for tonight and tomorrow’s freeze.

via TweetDeck

I have power, @michaelneale, but we’re off-grid with our own solar-battery system.

via TweetDeck

Road cleared. I feel so butch now.

via TweetDeck

Fuck. Heavier than it looks.

via TweetDeck

Slight delay while I clear the road, @R_Chirgwin http://post.ly/2Fip4

via Posterous

@R_Chirgwin Battery at 52.8V, sky still bright and clear. Solar panels delivering net 1.6kW, is that?

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Walk dirt tracks then Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls; shops; probably cab back since it’s cold out there.

via TweetDeck

My photos were in my “50 to 50” blog posts, scroll down at http://arseh.at/57o /cc @mpbowers @veritychambers @Davidramli

via TweetDeck

RT @mpbowers: My example, Grandfather left top, and 3 brothers embarkation for WWI portraits http://twitpic.com/5ejqsw [That’s fantastic.]

via TweetDeck

RT @RatbagsDotCom: If you’re wandering around in this wind with hot coals, keep the resulting bushfire on your side of the line. thx [Awww.]

via TweetDeck

RT @mpbowers: Working title is Everyday photographs, Extraordinary journeys - That much loved and treasured analogue pic /cc @Davidramli

via TweetDeck

@mpbowers I remember the conversation! What’s the project called again, Mike? Questions are being asked already… /cc @veritychambers

via TweetDeck in reply to mpbowers

@R_Chirgwin Wandering through the scrub on Solstice with a brazier of coals would be wonderfully appropriate though. I’ll do it tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Noted. A shame there isn’t another punter tonight, I could use it to get their fire going.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Is there a trick to removing dead coals/ash from a running fire to make more room, other than just being bloody careful?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

I’m on ABC 666 Canberra at 1535 AEST because I inspired a photographic project by @veritychambers &a@mpbowerswers, apparently.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan, revised: 1300 errand Wentworth Falls; 1535 ABC 666 Canberra radio spot; 1615 recording for “Patch Monday”; 1657 sunset ritual.

via TweetDeck

Rearranging my day, thanks to a series of random, unplanned telephone conversations.

via TweetDeck

Committing acts of journalism. On the telephone.

via TweetDeck

I’m now starting to try to switch into writing mode. Provided the cottage doesn’t blow away in this wind.

via TweetDeck

@PenguinBooksAus Oh it’s an easy enough mistake to make, with most references being northern hemisphere and/or in GMT/UTC. /cc @seamus

via TweetDeck

@seamus My comment was triggered specifically by @PenguinBooksAus saying today was the shortest day, though, which is not true.

via TweetDeck

Geoscience Australia’s Compute Sunrise, Sunset & Twilight Times” thingy is good. http://arseh.at/85w

via TweetDeck

I imagine that the Muse will join me in about half an hour, and then I’ll be able to start writing myself. Did you hear that, Muse?

“Outrage over girls’ kick boxing match reeks of ignorance and hypocrisy”, says @JohnBirmingham, and says it well. http://arseh.at/85v

via TweetDeck

And while as @fangbooks says celebrations are arbitrary, if someone says “solstice is [date]” and gets date wrong, that’s an error. @seamus

via TweetDeck

Nope, @seamus. Counting centuries is a human construct, arbitrary. A solstice is a specific event that happens at a specific time…

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce: Will you be burning a virgin? [Perhaps not. A hunt would be time-consuming the iron stove too small.]

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: Finish the unfinished article; make a meal; remainder TBA, but certainly back to start Solstice celebrations before sunset.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad It’s the calendar that moves, mapping integer days onto events that happen outside that frame of reference. http://arseh.at/85s

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

RT @jonoabroad: We should be misled by intelligent people? [If at all possible, yes. If only out of self-respect.]

via TweetDeck

Winter Solstice in Australia is TOMORROW 22 June at 0316 AEST. Do not be misled by idiots. http://arseh.at/85r

via TweetDeck

@PenguinBooksAus Perhaps check your sources, consider time zones, and correct to the “shortest day” being tomorrow in Australia. Sigh.

via TweetDeck in reply to PenguinBooksAus

RT @DHS_Dassa: A cord is a tightly packed stack 4 x 4 x 8 foot… [It’s true, http://arseh.at/85q confirms.]

via TweetDeck

I thought I’d feel more refreshed this morning than I actually do. This does not bode well.

via TweetDeck

Today’s scrubland forecast: 10C, very windy with a few showers, before an overnight Solstice low of 2C. I have just resurrected the fire.

via TweetDeck

RT @R_Chirgwin: In effect, it means “roughly this much”, where “this” is a variable measured by how much the truck driver wants to unload.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Goodness, wood is still measured in cords? Now I’ll be distracted looking up what that means! :)
