Christmas has come & gone, there is a layer of ice beneath the snow except when the parking lot isn't covered by puddles. 2020 is almost over with and people keep saying 2021 has to be better. I am thinking not by much since this virus is still with us and has turned even trickier. Makes me think that 2021 will be the same, maybe even worse.
The second wave arrived as expected but I think there are going to be several more waves until we finally find a vaccine that works at controlling it the way the measles vaccine makes measles much easier for kids to handle. The problem is that there are several different formulations and no one know which one will be the most effective.
I am trying to get upbeat about 2021 but all I see when I look ahead is more of the same. It may not be a zombie apocalypse but it has changed how we shop and how we react to each other on a day to day basis. Avoiding human contact is not healthy but it seems to be the only thing that works to slow this virus down.
I have spent the last month looking at my life from a senior citizens perspective, well not really but I have been thinking about how I want this blog to go in the New Year. I am not sure I want to bother, the two of you are the only one who read my blog on the regular. That tells me that what I thought was important really isn't. I wanted a platform that I could share all the stuff I research and my experiments in various parts of my life. I do not feel I have accomplished this and honestly, I am not willing to put effort into making it happen on a wider scale.
I have a WordPress account that I have never used and a domain who's name only makes sense to me. It is also a lie since while I do cook and make things they are not much more than experiments on my part I am not usually willing to share the details and thinking (ie learning new things) I do that too but with a little work on your part you would be able to find the info you are looking for as easily as I do. Google is everyone's friend.
Can you tell I've got a case of the Winter Blues cause I can see it in my writing? I wish I could recover my sunny disposition but it is long gone and I suspect non-recoverable.
Last years word was adventures and I planned on having several but along came Covid and that option was no longer available to me. This year I am having a hard time choosing a new one. I expect to be even more housebound next year than I have been this year so a lot of words that I would like to choose just don't work.
Perhaps I need to find stubborn or perseverance again or I may need a whole different outlook, an attitude change if you will. Perhaps but not today. Wish me luck! I'm working on 2021 but right now it is elusive. That could change between one breath and the next but who knows.
I hope the New Year is kind to you and hopefully I'll see you there!
