With this Calendar post we begin the six months that were really nothing to brag about. I took less photos than usually. I saw fewer new things. I talked to so few people (in person). I was in the pandemic funk and it started in November.
First, before autumn is done: The most wonderful autumn photo I’ve seen comes from Bonnie Rae at In Search of the Very. She posted it in her lovely post A Way Forward and kindly allowed me to repost it. Click on it and be transported to Bonnie’s post.
So what was there in November last year? One trip to the Orbetello lagoon 15 minutes away where we buy groceries and look at birds – as long as we aren’t closed inside our municipality, which indeed happened later. The repeat of the lovely path across the fields – really pretty but a bit long for my aching feet. I was glad I took my hiking poles. Food. A new book! Bestia. Dying oleander. Did I mention birds?
And this year? The situation in Slovenia is terrible. Almost half of all tests end up positive. Wards are full. Doctors are burnt out. So what do you prefer, nothing or everything horrible at once?
Coincidentally, in my blogging memories there is only one entry for today. Since May 21st this year when I started to look back in this way in my daily blog posts, this has happened only once. There hasn’t been a single day without a single entry through my eight years of blogging yet but it’s coming up later in November.
Oh, another thing: If anybody can recommend an online tool for building my photo calendar (with five photos per month, one big, four smaller), I’m all ears. The end of year is coming.
Here are my twenty photos for last November and, unlike usually, the selection process was easy. But in December it will be even easier. And yet, and still, not bad as Novembers go.
