I’m still here…

Filed under: General — decoded_ @ 3:23 pm

Hello, well this COVID-19 global pandemic situation sucks doesn’t it!

I hope you’re all holding it together, keeping safe, staying healthy, keeping in touch with friends and family.

I really feel for those who have lost businesses, lost jobs, out of work, reduced work, reduced income, who are hurting, sick, alone, homeless, stuck at home, those who are looking after children, home schooling as well as working from home. It’s a really stressful time of history to be living through isn’t it. I hate having the constant fear of COVID-19 in my mind all the time. I really hope a successful vaccine can be created to protect us all, easily available for all.

This blog is (was) mostly used as a way to keep track of music/club events I get (got) out to. Because of COVID-19, I’ve not been out to anything since early March. I miss clubbing, but I also feel like I’ve lost my connection to music a lot this year. I just don’t have the time, energy, passion for music as much as I did. I hope I get that back. I guess it’s more connected to the experience of dancing to/hearing music out with others, than I ever really realised.

So yeah, I’m still here. Just staying at home, working from home, thankful to still have a job right now.

Also, sorry about the broken images here now. I recently changed my ISP/RSP and lost my personal webspace, and not got around to finding somewhere else to upload images to, and changing all the links.

I’m using the NBN now, FTTC, it was kind of sad to say goodbye to my telephone land line, home phones, ADSL2+ after a life time with them. I won’t miss the spam calls.

Take care, hopefully see you all out and about sometime, somewhere in the future.

Cheers Dave
