Read: The Colony by Audrey Magee ★★★★☆ 📚
engrossing exploration of colonisation & its woes in Ireland. 1979 adventures of an English artist & French linguist appropriating, each in their own way, the culture of an Irish isle are interspersed with reports of death in the north.
Read: The Woman of Troy by Pat Barker ★★★☆☆
Walk to Duncolm. A sparking day, photos map & notes walkmap
I’ve now plotted 61 walks on the same map which is quite interesting. Spacebar hides the map tiles for that abstract look.
New iPhone feature. This is cool. In class we used use keynote or online services to cut out images. This is even simpler. No need for green screen. Works on my 4yr old phone. Hope it comes to iPadOS.
Running through my camera roll now iOS 16 installed. Impressed with the lookup of birds & insects that has been added to flora.
60 walks at Kilpatrick Muir I saw this map made by Amanda Thompson, @passingplace & though I might repurpose some of my walk maps. With a little help from leaflet & examples I made the above from 60 gpx tracks. The most tedious part was exporting the tracks from Trails, 1 by 1!
Read: The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel 📚★★★★★
Amazing multi viewpoint story. Writing had me invested in each of the diverse characters as they came into focus. Then their stories slowly fitted together. Beautiful. Really catches the way people imagine different lives.
