So here’s the thing.
This blog is pretty serious, as a rule. I talk about politics, environment, fires, the plague, etc. But right now, the plague is all consuming. It’s every thought and plan and day. Nobody needs to read about it here. I don’t want to write about COVID19 for the next eighteen months. And somehow, it’s hard to focus on Climate Change right now.
If COVID19 is my only choice, I think I have to take it from a more personal angle. I must admit, I have started reading other people’s blogs because of curiosity about other people’s lives. Started trying to get a feel for how it is in other parts of the world right now. But after I left Facebook, I vowed I would remain as anonymous as possible. Nobody I know will be easily recognizable by this blog if I can help it. It should not be my choice to reveal things about other people on the internet. And, by extension, I have to remain pretty anonymous too. Otherwise it gives too much away.
So I am pondering my next step. Maybe I will end up writing about COVID19 because I can’t help it. Or maybe there will be a break while I figure out a new angle. Some ideas include:
*learning how to home-school my kids
*something more on the creative side
*comparing COVID19 to a journey to Mars
Watch this space. I’m not sure what’s coming.
