It’s been awhile with some very, very long stretches in between. My reasons for – in all practical purposes – abandoning the art of blogging are as varied as the random directions my brain-streamings often led me. The biggest reason, however, is the nagging suspicion that I was – for the most part – talking to myself.
Nothing has really changed … aside from that huge Blanket of Uncertainty now hanging over us and the realization that the Human form is damn fragile!
But it does give me something to write about, even if I’m the only one reading it.
Day 4 is my personal accounting from the first day, Friday – the 13th day of March, when the Most Powerful Navy in the World – semi-officially – told me and those I work with to “Stay the hell home!” (my wording, not theirs)
So here I sit, fretting not so much about the virus, but more so how I might survive another “pre-retirement practice drill” with my loving, private-time-loving spousal unit. As I’m pretty sure, if this lasts more than a few weeks, death by COVID-19 might be the LEAST of my worries!
am was a corona virus skeptic. Not skeptical that the virus is real, dangerous, potent, and deadly … I have read enough about pandemics and live with a very experienced registered nurse to know better. More skeptical about the way its presence has been made the focus of hyper-caffeinated media hysteria, the ridiculous conspiracy theories about origins and transmissions, and the public panic which ensued.
I have no doubt this is serious or that The Authorities know more they are not sharing to be taking such drastic public measures. But that will be the last I say about it. My posts here will be more about coping with what is simply – at least for now – a personal inconvenience and intrusion.
I won’t be making light of what’s going on.
OK … maybe a little.
Until next time …
