Week 4 – why oh why oh why

Week 4 highlighted the strange habit of mine where balancing on a ladder with a badly hurt knee seems to be easier than to sit – and keep sitting – at my desk and create and write. 

It’s not that I don’t love to create and write and make, and once I manage to sit still for about 30 minutes, I forget everything around me and surface hours later wondering why it’s dark outside; the issue is the first 30 minutes sitting still and letting the magic happen. 

Papermache tribe – I’ll keep your secrets, work in progress
  • Two out of the three skylights are plastered and painted. 
  • The first of the giant tree ferns has been relocated. (If you ever consider to fell a 6-meter tall tree fern stuck between two houses with the only option for it to fall is through a 90cm wide gate with the gable of your house sticking out 30 cm into the before-mentioned 90cm … reconsider. I was gobsmacked when everything went to plan, and the tree fell precisely at the calculated angle, but I call this stupidly lucky any day)
  • Ah and the papermache tribe has two new members, and the last but one chapter of the book is now in a rough draft. 
Papermache tribe – nighttree guardian, work in progress

Ah … and I wrote this poem 

up the ladder, down the ladder
up the ladder, down the ladder
up the ladder, down the ladder 

knee ouch ouch
knee ouch ouch
knee ouch ouch 

why oh why oh why
why oh why oh why
why oh why oh why 

It’s very autobiographical …
