    Has COVID made you think differently about life?

    It's not changed me but it has reinforced how important family is.

    Hobby wise, I've dusted off my classical guitar and am trying to learn a few new pieces. As with all my guitars, I wish I could afford to upgrade them.

    And people stayed at home
    And read books
    And listened
    And they rested
    And did exercises
    And made art and played
    And learned new ways of doing things
    And stopped and listened more deeply
    Some meditated, some prayed, and some met their shadow
    And people began to think differently
    And people healed
    And in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways, dangerous, meaningless and heartless the earth began to heal
    And when the danger ended and people found themselves they grieved for the dead
    And made new choices
    And dreamed of new visions
    And created new ways of living
    And completely healed the earth just as they were healed


    .......A popular poem in the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1920

    20 Years later we are kicking the s... out of each other in WW2


    No I don't think things will change post Covid

    I am now hell bent on getting rid of the only debt I have, and the one that could screw me over, my mortgage. If that then enables me to retire early, I will do exactly that - maybe go from the stresses of my job to a less stressful job.

    Lovely poem. Not sure if it's Spanish or not? Sadly 16 years later Spain was embroiled in a civil war, which was persecutor to the 2nd WW. General Franco and his fascist Falange party aided and abetted by the Nazis trampling all over the working class, socialists and anarchists. I can thoroughly recommend George Orwell's (surely the best ever British author?) take on the war, in his 'Homage To Catalonia'.

    Smurfs was my favourite game on the Atari. It had the same 4 screebs/levels they just got quicker after you’d completed the 4 screens.

    Daley Thompson Decathlon for the ZX Spectrum was the holy grail of gaming for me.
