Amigo keeps asking me if I’ve blogged recently. It’s not that there’s nothing going on; it’s more like there’s too much going on. Focusing in on one topic seems overwhelming.
George Floyd. The protests he inspired; the riots and vandals that tagged along.
Buttercup. Our sweet bunny, about 14 years old (ancient!), passed on last week. I still expect her to meet me at the bottom of the stairs every morning when I get up.
Covid19. Again. Still. Pandemic hasn’t let up, despite its being relegated to smaller status in the evening news stories.
School. Work from home. How it’s different, both better and not so good.
The ever present garden! Some of the peas haven’t come up; there are blank spots in the lettuce patch. I blame the chipmunk who has taken up residence under one of the boards in the raised bed. Dang pest.
Sports. Amigo and I really, really miss sports. Baseball now, football in the fall – we’re left at loose ends.
Local protests vs. nearby cities vs. larger cities – compare, contrast, consider.
Barbershop chorus! They keep rehearsing in Zoom, but their two biggest fundraisers for the year have been cancelled. What does the future hold?
Meanwhile, I’m watching the world spinning around me and wondering when it will slow down and maybe even stop.
Where to go next? Too many directions, too many important topics in our lives, here at the O.K. Chorale.
