It’s been a while since I’ve done a Sunday thoughts post, so here goes. It’s been a busy couple of weeks, any spare time I get I try to paint, it’s so relaxing (most of the time – when I’m not getting cross with the President of Ireland – long story).
Covid continues, the numbers are rising and the kids (not mine obviously, even though I was asked if they had the other day!) are back to school. It all seems quite strange, because when the schools closed, back in March, the numbers were low. It’s hard to believe we are 6 months into this new normal. Usually, in September, I’d be looking forward to going to Culture Night, this year I don’t want to go. I also have a ticket bought for a festival that was meant to happen in August and has now been rescheduled to April and I really don’t want to go to that either. I can’t see myself being in crowds of people, I was bad enough before with anxiety and now I just can’t imagine it.
I was talking on my radio show about time travel, and I’ve always been interested in going back in time. Especially as I go exploring and find derelict cottages, I’d love to go and see how they used to be and the families who lived there. Then I got onto thinking about going forward in time and wondering what people would think if they just landed in 2020. No one could have predicted this. It just makes me think.
Anyway I’m rambling on, as always. I do have more to say but I don’t feel like writing about it at the moment, so when the time is right I’ll post it. After years I’ve writing I’ve sussed if the words don’t come naturally I won’t force them. I hope you are all doing OK and thanks for reading.
Val, if you are upset with your president, can you imagine how I feel here in the US? It still surprises me how much we have incommon, except for the painting, I can’t even draw a crooked line, but now I’, rammbling so I will close for now and hope someday we will be able to talk in person.
