Rounded off Squarely

It has been over a week since I got a round to post, and the previous one squeezed in the Weekly Photo Challenge so I may as well painfully contrive to drag that into this one as well; therefore the pictures here squarely reflect two aspects of my life at the moment, Rounded  off as far as possible.

Writing my Keyboard Elements textbook has been taking up all spare waking moments when not dashing round on the daily rounds with kids etc. Here is a section of innards – two facing pages showing my take on keyboard/note relationships as well as on the Cycle of Fourths/Fifths, with a couple of cover pictures adding decoration.

And here is another of our main routes which has to be rounded, due to a bit of a hole.

Note the car, for scale.

The road is, indeed, a teensy bit unsafe.

Part of a house a few roads away from us headed for the sea at speed. Music can be dangerous stuff. We gather that the owner was playing the piano in the front part that departed, but left to watch TV in the back part just before the piano played serious discords.

The wind got a bit breezy again yesterday, and some more trees fell over across our main route previously pictured.  Ho, hum.

Today it rained a bit again, and my pool runneth over.  Ho, hum …

    Wow …. some serious off-roading!
    Or is this a variant of load shedding?

  4. Have you had really bad weather or was this erosion over time?

    I’ve just got all my old piano skills textbooks out for my friend who has started teaching this year to borrow.

      Erosion overnight – we have had terribly bad weather. Gales, floods and hail.
      Amazing how one can find fresh angles from which to present these well-trodden paths. I am having great fun in writing it and it is a great refresher course!

    Dang, that is quite the speed bump you folks have going on there or should I say speed ka-thump. I wish you and your neighbors well, sorry that I don’t have any great suggestions to help you out.

    Sounds like exciting times, things happening, the landscape reworking itself . . . should be fodder for a book or two.
