Like everyone else I had no concept that pandemics dragged on and on and on and on and on….
We all want “normal” back but I feel like we are a bloody long way from it. Like the health care workers I am discouraged at our lack of progress in managing this disease. Like 80% of people in my province I am ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTED at the leadership who only care about economic growth.

At this point it’s just keep a low profile, wear a mask (like seriously people it’s not bloody hard) and assess every last activity to ensure its not exposing those I love to risks that aren’t worth it.
The death toll climbs. The average age of deaths is dropping steadily. Pediatric patients are dying, children the age of my grandchildren. This has got to be rock bottom right?

Any one out there have a good ideas on how to stay positive in a time of such negativity? I could use a dose of silver lining about now.

It must have been the nuts. Usually my memory is not that clear… or perhaps I worked more than my share of Friday’s hence the clear look back. Whatever it was I remember and today I paid it forward 40 years later.

Technically I’m not quite “playing by the rules” with the challenge as presented. But hey what’s new? I’m merely thinking outside the ordinary realm of “afloat”.

If the blog prompt had been about Burl Wood or a burl of wood it would have seemed easy. Instead this week’s theme is burlywood, the colour. Which I had to look up only to find out it’s a boring beige really. Ugh but I’ve decided to rise to the challenge.
