Holding pattern

Not thriving. Just surviving. And lending help to friends and family who are suffering the economic fallout of COVID. I have good days and bad days. Still feel disoriented in this new life but if I have a job, a roof over my head, and no one I know gets infected, then that’s all that really counts right now.


I've been spending a lot of time naked in my apartment during the Covid-19 self isolation..But the only time I feel naked is when my neighbour can see me from her balcony..She can see into my living room and then I feel deliciously naked...Are people really naked if no one sees them ?

You know what ?

I think Jim Patterson should run for mayor. :)

Masks and six foot rule

I use an elevator everyday and still people bound into the elevator instead of waiting till you have got off the elevator using the six foot rule.just look at the USA statistics people .

Blew It

Today I had this (seemingly) great plan to tell my crush I've been into him for a while. But then I forgot to bring along the baking I had made for him and chickened out. He's moving jobs and we won't really talk much going forward, so there's a good chance that was my last shot. But hey, I guess next time I'll know to speak up sooner.

Masks on transit!

It's not hard to find face masks anymore, nor are they expensive. And TransLink has handed out thousands of them for free. Why then, when we're trying to stop the spread of a deadly virus, are the MAJORITY of public transit riders not wearing one? It disgusts me. I take the bus every day, and on countless occasions I've been the only passenger wearing a mask out of about ten others. In those cases, I feel like taking the damn thing off — but I don't, because I know that I'm doing my part, and the world needs more of that. And I'm clinging to the hope that by wearing a mask, maybe I'll inspire at least one other transit user to do the responsible, respectful, and intelligent thing. Get it together, folks.


Nobody yet understands the hurting this virus has laid on sociteys psyche.this virus has pushed us over the edge.destroyed lives family's,faith in anything resembling normality.wear a mask,don't ,six foot distance ,don't ,stay behind the line ,don't.we are social animals who have thru corona virus lost our sociability.god I miss hugging my grandkids

What is the point

I spent over an hour on the phone tonight with a loved one who lives in the US. This person talked the *entire* time about Trump. Didn't ask me how I'm doing. Didn't congratulate me on my new career. What is the point of engaging with one another if we don't have real conversations? What is the point of any of this unless we lift each other up, pay attention to one another? Please, don't talk my ear off about how much the world sucks. I read the news; I know how much it sucks. Ask me what I'm doing about it. Tell me what you're doing about it. Learn about me and my life, learn about the people I'm trying to help. Otherwise — what is the bloody point??
