Get well, Mrrzy! I needed all of December to recover from COVID. The version you describe sounds like what I had — a messy head-cold that just won’t go the fuck away, plus tiredness and achy joints. Christmas with no sense of taste or smell was not very joyous, but I’m now back to normal (whatever that is). I hope you’re as fortunate.

Most people here are pretending that Covid is gone but its not, its only more infectious but just as deadly. Sometimes I think that Covid was not sufficiently deadly so people acted in strange ways from the politically bizarre to the deadly denialism. However strange it has been a bad rehearsal for the next worse pandemic should it occur.

keb, I think a lot of us feel like, "well I'm not 'worldwide', who wants to hear from me'. But, we do, and I wish all the people in 'ordinary' spots would check in and tell us how it's going.

Doing well in the SW of the US, a place called Yuma, Arizona, where they grow all the romaine lettuce and lots of other salad-y things, and used to mine gold and things from the desert in days gone by. A refuge from colder climes, though the desert wind and dust storms can be fierce. But right now, a nice almost-perfect winter climate, where northern Yanks and Canadians can hide out til spring. Lucky and/or blessed to be able to do so.

From damp, grey Stratford, Ontario: After two and a half years of masks, vaccinations, hand-washing and general bullet-dodging, I finally caught COVID-19. It could be a hell of a lot worse, and definitely would be if I had not eagerly lined up for every needle on offer, but it’s been 12 days and I’m still a sneezing, sniffling, coughing mess with no relief in sight.

On the other hand, I am finally getting my money’s worth out of the fancy “smart” telly I bought when the old Sony bit the dust, and the cats are loving the many hours I spend in the comfy chair when I should be at the gym or choir practice, or taking a walk or just getting the groceries in.

The minimalist lifestyle currently in fashion has a certain appeal, especially when I contemplate dusting all the bookcases, but I’d hate to be quarantined in it!

I have several friends who travelled to Iceland last year and this, even with the COVID protocols. They shared great photos and they arrived home healthy. (I helped one friend shorten a pair of bib rain pants that she was taking along for hikes to waterfalls.) Good to hear from Skarpi every so often!

The seasons are changing and while it's snowing along the US northern tier, it's raining and occasionally freezing overnight in the south. There are two vehicle-housed sets of folks I follow - I'm interested in where Patty is ending up for the winter, and two other friends who fled Florida ahead of the most recent hurricane, headed this way.

After two years of progress our government is about to hit a standstill; the new Congress has no intention of doing anything useful so it feels like a dark time is descending (except that much of what Biden got passed was long term stuff and there will be work advancing on various infrastructure projects and cost reductions in health care.) It sounds like the climate talks that are concluding haven't done enough, as usual, but are doing better than they were during when the other guy was in office. It didn't help that our main representative caught COVID a few days ago.

Glad to hear an upbeat update from Skarpi! Let us hope the worst of the plague years are behind us very soon.

I continue to be an irresponsible traveler and adventurer in my old age, though a home base for a few months of the year is starting to look like a really good idea.

The mudcat singaround continues to be a lifeline that I am grateful to grab onto, when I am not stuck with bad signal strength or forced into traveling on Mondays. Did stumble onto a kindred soul in Missouri and we had a memorable campfire sing. Maybe there will be more of those as the pandemic subsides.

Visit didn't happen, but I have a box to send one of these days to mark an occasion.

Fall is here, lovely weather, and we had some rain this week so the yard work is easier with the soil somewhat friable now.

This year I've made a point of eating more seasonal fruits and vegetables (partly for the cost, but mostly for the better flavor) and it is apple season in the US right now. That said, I have made a mental note to not buy Ambrosia apples again. Yuck. Way too sour, almost like eating a Jonathan apple raw. Not actually that bad, but it is one that I will reserve for cooking only.

Details later, but there is a possibility that after 20+ years of talking on Mudcat I may get to meet a Mudcatter on vacation just a few hours away from here. I told my ex I may need him to come feed the dogs for me one day if I make a long day trip for the visit, and found myself making the explanation that several of us have made over the years - about this person I've known via Mudcat for 20 years but we've never met in real life.

As long as you enjoy the things you create is what matters. There are bound to be others who enjoy it too like me, fractally speaking:^/ By Chaos theory the things you do might only be a flutter of butterfly wings, but expand to a hurricane in the real world.
The talent thing is real but one can buy talent with perspiration to a degree. Music posed too high a bar for me to go pro.

Legacy is a funny thing. Some people have a legacy that lasts millenniums and some last for a lunchtime
or no time at all.
Besides we do things in the now and not for legacy anyhow.

There are all sorts of new mobility devices. Feeling safe is a lovely thing but there are no guarantees.

Thanks for the kind remarks, Stilly River Sage. I suppose Denise's increased need of care has perhaps made me a bit glummer than usual. When she is so disabled, theres not many places we can go out. Even the tiniest doorsteps seem like an assault course, and she panics.

I'm very lucky. Surrounded by beautiful guitars and living with a woman who has loved me over fifty years now - plus I live in a beautiful Dorset village with a big garden. I'm sorry. Self pity is not good.

Well generally speaking I write in a very undisciplined way. I've noticed that what I write doesn't in any way resemble anything published anywhere. So although I've been attending the class for several years, I've never bothered typing my stories out. My stories make the class laugh, and I enjoy that feedback.

But thanks for your interest Stilly River Sage......I suppose it traces the same path as my songwriting. I'm not sorry I've spent my life writing songs, although now I've got to nearly the end of the road, I suppose I have to face the facts that I wasn't really good enough to warrant this amount of effort.

You have to say ....well at least I wasn't a serial killer leaving a lot of people with ruined lives behind me. What I did didn't achieve very much, but hopefully I didn't do too much harm.
