I’ve been listening to and enjoying @Matti’s excellent podcasts, The Early Riser and The Puppycast. That’s probably why I found myself speaking into Voice Memos on my phone as I set off for my beach walk this morning. Drafts app transcribed it for me, with not too many mistakes:
It’s 7 am on Monday the 28th of March 2022. I’m walking down the lane with Venus and the crescent Moon as my companions. The air’s cool but pretty enjoyable. It’s not really light yet but it’s getting there. The sun is just thinking about rising over in the east. I can see a bit of a glow and some shadows of the clouds. I’m on my way to walk past the lakes and down to the beach, down to the Waiorongomai Stream.
Hardly world-shattering stuff, but I wasn’t actually thinking of publishing when I started.
When I reached Waikawa river I stopped for a moment to record the Pied Stilts, with the noise of the sea as background.
