The world is a difficult place right now. I can not advocate turning a blind eye to struggles and hardships, but for those who've had an eyefull and need a break, I made a nice little game about cute bees that might make your day a little brighter <3 cheeseness.itch.io/hive-time youtube.com/watch?v=w4M6-zkLN6

Last, but not least, I saw my baby lapwing friends on the ride home (completely forgetting that I'm much bigger and much more scary when I'm on a bike - sorry, friends!)

I met a few other miscellaneous friends, including this little friend who was happy to dig around in the dirt while I sat about a metre away.

I spent a bunch of time with this golden whistler, who was *fabulous*

I met some wallabies, who were interested to hear that it was my birthday. They invited me to eat some grass with them, but I told them that my metabolism wasn't up for it and moved on

I also saw that I think was a wedge tailed eagle. I accidentally flicked across to shutter priority mode and ended up with a 2 second exposure of the sky instead, which is almost as good.

Lots of birds were out and about. Kookaburras, golden whistlers, grey shrike thrushes, so many superb fairywrens, welcome swallows (not pictured), silvereyes (not pictured), and wagtails (not pictured).

I did some bushwalking yesterday. I cycled out to the gorge, did the Duck Reach walk, and kept going. Here comes a photodump

Managed to spend some time a little closer to the lapwing family I saw yesterday. I love these angry friends and their little yellow faces. The hatchlings are still pretty wobbly on their legs, but eager to explore and investigate

Oh, and I saw a recently hatched (yesterday?) lapwing chick. Would have liked to have gotten closer, but the parents have very big personal space bubbles, and I didn't want to stress them out.

I've been watching a magpie carry willow twigs to the top of a tree for about a week. Thinking that there might be a nest, I decided to take a look today. Nope, just tearing up twigs for fun. I also had a nice chat with a wattlebird

Screen size is a bit big for my needs, and the battery doesn't look accessible enough to swap in a spare battery when out and about, but otherwise, this is 1000% the laptop I've been hunting for for the past decade. Looking forward to availability in Australia

Website's getting hammered, but it's modular, upgradeable, repairable, and supports

I hung out with a pair of butcherbirds and a family of magpies this morning. It was raining, so I didn't take my camera (sometimes it's nicer to just be with them anyway)

Just shipped builds of Closed Hands, a powerful piece of interactive fiction that explores the impact and context of a societal-dysfunction-fuelled tragedy on a handful of people with different backgrounds. I'm proud to have played a tiny role in its existence.
