This Week in Spring - April 16th, 2019

Hi Spring fans! What a week it’s been! When we last spoke I was in Capetown, South Africa or Johannesburg, South Africa.

We’ve got a ton to get to this week, as usual, so let’s get to it.

This Week in Spring - April 9th, 2019

Hi Spring fans! Welcome to another wild-and-wacky week of This Week in Spring! I’m in Johannesburg, South Africa where I both spoke at the SpringOne Tour South Africa event and at the Johannesburg Java User Group. Had tons of fun on safari visiting (from the safety of a good deal of distance and an SUV) the utterly astonishing and beautiful - majestic - wildlife here. I can’t stress that last part enough. The animals here are so, so, SO breathtaking. I got as close as I ever want to get to an elephant that was like a small house with eyes. Utterly massive! It towered over buses. When you go into the bush, my tour guide warned, you enter the food chain, and there, we don’t figure very high at all. The experience reminded me how insignificant I am and how utterly privileged I am to be here, with you, dear community. We’re all pretty lucky.
