Week 19/2023: It feels like

Week of 8 May 2023

It feels like

The weeks are going by so fast and there’s no way of slowing anything down.

Before I’ve had time to process one week, the next week has started and before I know it, that’s over too, and I’ve done nothing I wanted to do.

Anyone else?

How do you deal with it?

What was the best thing about this week?

I loved watching the currawongs in my back yard this week.

There have been a lot of them around lately.
