[NON BLOG] Hello from me, 21 times

I would like to say hello. I have been gone from here a long time, I think, the longest break I have ever taken from blogging.

What have I been doing all this time? In the main, I have been trying to live my strange new life this 2020 as best as I can. This includes thinking seriously about what I want to do with this space, and its neighbours. 2020 is many things, but one thing that it can be is a vital space to look back and reflect. (At least it can be those as fortunate as I to be able to use it so; I acknowledge my privilege.) This is going to be a year of transition.

In the meantime, I would like to share with you twenty-one selfies, taken by me in the course of my day-to-day life, at work and at play, all but one within the borders of the city of Toronto. (Oh, borders are things we have come to know too well.)

My last selfie is an unmasked one. Resolution aside, I quite like the photo that my Echo Show 5 took of me.

[PHOTO] Blurry selfie, with portrait of Shakespeare

Shakespeare died a month ago. (Well, a month ago yesterday.)

I am fine. It is just–well, what a month this has been.

This has been a very weird experience.

[NON BLOG] Two selfies, before and after

On a lighter note, it has occurred to me that if I want to test-run a change in personal appearance, now is a great time to do so. Who will see me in real life, after all?

Better? #toronto #me #selfie #mustache

Opinions? I like this new look.

[PHOTO] Post-trip selfie with Shakespeare

I am not quite sure how I will best share my Venice trip photos with my readers. They are all on Facebook, and are all viewable in my Instagram account, but organizing something like eight or nine hundred photos will be time-consuming.

In the meantime, please enjoy this photo of me with Shakespeare that I took just after I got home yesterday afternoon. Shakespeare really was glad to see me, I think. Even now, he is next to me on my couch, happily curled up.
