SAD Times

At a Bit of a Loss

PXL_20211024_213313318 (1) With my PC in for an upgrade, I realize how many times I popon in during a day to check something - in spite of my trying to ignore The Facebook. It's a habit, and not necessarily a bad one. Perhaps a way to cope with the isolation of almost 2 years of a forced social isolation. We do what we have to do, we don't set the bar too high for "accomplishments", right? I still take a few moments each evening to reflect on the things I did during the day, and not necessarily looking for planned events from a to-do list - or a lack of them. I also plan something positive for the next day, to look forward to when I wake up.

I do find myself at a bit of a loss though, on what to do, other than some chores. I have more time lately to read  (Oscar Wilde again)  or watch videos on my laptop (Forbrydelsen) or just wander the neighbourhood. It's an eclectic mix of old and new, including this statue of somebody's mother. 

Some gems from the day:

  • Speaking of isolation, a smile from the Onion - Family Spoils their Grandma with a 5 minute video chat.
  • Here's a 360 degree video from the top of Everest.
  • From CTV, " Feds have until Friday to appeal ruling to compensate Indigenous children". I assume, after battling this for years, they will not appeal, and instead spin it as showing how supportive they are of our First Nations.  
  • And finally, trouble selling your home? Not a problem, just bury a body in the yard. Well, a statue of St. Joseph, actually, but y0u can even buy a kit for it.
