Talking movies, music and other close encounters of the social media kind.
The world’s a lot different since my last blog post in 2019.
Writing this tonight on my MacBook Pro laptop – propped up by a laptop stand and three coffee table books,
working from home is now the new norm, as well as yoga sessions with Yoga with Adrienne on YouTube, face-masks, Zoom meetings and going out for a walk outside and trying to avoid other human beings.
(Even though I do like that in some aspects).
Welcome to the World of Covid.
And in this world – what I’ve learnt is that it’s the little things that you end up missing. Yearning for the things you’d take for granted. A walk on the park or to the beach. Going to a movie.
Conversation with a friend at a Cafe. A quiet beer amongst loud conversation with your mates at a pub. Dinner at a restauraunt. Going to a live concert. Meeting family and friends. In the flesh.
But on the flip side I do like it that the air has become cleaner. No carbon footprints from petrol guzzling vehicles in gridlock. I do like it when Keas and Tuis start appearing on quiet city streets.
And saving money not spending it on having a conversation with a friend at a cafe. A quiet beer amongst loud conversation with mates at a pub. Dinner at a restaurant. Going to a live concert.
But the biggest positive to come out of it – and I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing, is that I’ve had the time to really catch up on reading those books I’ve bought but have never read,
and re-watch classic movies and TV shows.
Because that’s what movie-geeks like to do.
