BLOGGER'S BLOCK IN THE TIME OF PLAGUE
I was thoroughly enjoying hearing about my friend's trip and seeing the wonderful images in my mind,
This is because COVID has not only infected the lungs of the afflicted but the minds of everyone. And how could our minds not be infected? You can't look at a newspaper or go to any any news outlet without being hit with the latest COVID update.
I don't feel like blogging about COVID all the time, but if one is chronicling contemporary life, then one is chronicling COVID. COVID pushes aside the rest of life, hogs the stage, demands to be front and center. So my blogger's dilemma is this: write about life, which means writing about COVID, or try to ignore COVID and write about something else, which means not writing about life. But then I expect that's how it's always been for recorders of daily life in times of plague. I guess it's no wonder that I'm often fighting blogger's block these days. I guess it's no wonder I've been fighting blogger's block for the past four-and-a-half years.
It's just one #$%! plague after another.
