Hello December.

Posted on December 8, 2020 at 10:30 AM

As always I read the previous blog I wrote before writing again.  My last sentence referred to hoping for an improvement to our Covid-19 situation.  I'm sorry to say that things are, unfortunately worse than when I wrote my last entry.

First of all we, in my area of Southern Ontario have been in lockdown for two weeks, almost halfway through the four week minimum we were given to be in this stage.  Our schools have remained for the most part, open, with the exception of one or two that have closed due to outbreaks.  We are advised not to go out unless it's for work, school, medical appointments or to shop for food and essentials.  Non-essential shops and businesses are closed, along with indoor dining in restaurants, gyms and theatres.  Our numbers are reaching alarming rates, in every category; Hospital and ICU admissions, positive cases, positivity percentages and sadly, deaths.  Indeed a very serious situation.  There are vaccines available, soon to be landing here in Canada.  These give some hope I suppose although the process of receiving them seems a daunting task and will be a slow procedure.

Christmas will be a very different affair this year.  I'm afraid I'm going to miss seeing my daughter, her husband and my beautiful little grandson.  I do not blame our government for this like some people are doing,  I blame everyone who have carelessly and blatantly disregarded public health measures, without thought for anyone else, and just gathered en masse without any precautions. I've seen people posting online bragging about holding their big family holiday celebrations as normal.  I find this just so selfish.  

In other news, today marks the 40th anniversay of the dreadful day we lost John Lennon to a cruel, unecessary and violent act committed by a person whom I will not stoop to name.  I'll never get over this loss.  I have always been and always will be a huge Beatles fan.  They are part of my childhood growing up in England, and I feel very fortunate to have witnessed firsthand the craziness of Beatlemania.  There will never be anyone like them, in my opinion.  I feel they changed the music of the world completely.  There's an all day tribute to the man and his music, both his solo work and his Beatles' compositions.  It's both sad and happy at the same time and I must admit to shedding a few tears while listening.

In art news, there's not a whole lot to report.  I was extremely fortunate to join a few other artisans in an unexpected pop up market in Meaford last Saturday, put together by the chamber of commerce.  The space was large and airy, with all safety protocols and appropriate distancing in place.  I met some great people, both customers and fellow vendors alike and was able to make a few sales.  It was really fantastic to be in that atmosphere once again, due to Covid-19 of course everything has been canceled.  We were hoping to be able to have another one this coming Saturday but alas it isn't possible.

I've been very lax in getting to my Twitter Art Exhibit piece.  I started one, but I'm simply not happy with it so today, once I've written this blog, I'm getting my paints and brushes out.  I'm finding it hard to get any inspiration I'm afraid.  I hope when I write my next blog in January that things will have improved.

Stay Safe.  Stay at home if you can.  

In the words of John Lennon....."A very merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year....Let's hope it's a good one....without any fear..."

Best wishes and Blessings for the best Holiday Season you're able to have.

See you next year.
