Unless something unexpected and terribly important comes up, I won’t be posting any new items until at least September. There are a couple of reasons.
The pandemic has shut down so many of the things that make life interesting and enjoyable that I’m left with little to celebrate or write about. The museums, galleries, and theatres are closed, and I haven’t visited a restaurant in more than three months.
Because I’m in at least two of the high-risk groups that COVID-19 targets, I’ve been self-secluding since 14 March. Since I’m seriously introverted by nature, it hasn’t been as difficult for me as it has been for other, more outgoing people, but after three months, I’m beginning to feel the effects of an urban version of cabin fever. Condo fever, I guess. Even with all the books and films and music in the world only a few keystrokes away, you go a little batty after a while.
That will all end sometime in the next two months. The long-awaited renovation of my apartment, damaged a year ago when our roof-top pool dumped its contents on the floors below, is scheduled for sometime before the end of July. Everything in my condo must go into storage, and I’ll have to temporarily vacate during the two weeks when the work is being done, so I’ll be hors de combat for the duration. Putting all the pieces back together when I return will probably take up most of the rest of 2020.
So it’s goodbye for a while. See you sometime in the Fall.
Leaving you with my current favourite song, “Suck On Light” by Boy & Bear.
