And Just Like That
...we spiral once again into the dumps. Getting to be a holiday tradition, this.
Clear triggers : Lu's departure for the cold climes of Canada is confirmed, and irrevocable. We greet the New Year with her absence - a yawning void which I doubt very much will be filled.
My sadness aside, her leave creates new and unpleasant repercussions for my home life.
Not to go into too much detail, but let's say my days of more or less peaceful solitude may soon be over.
And in my dotage, I'm not one who greets change enthusiastically nor kindly.
It also doesn't help that I've once again become a cast member of Contagion. I'm looking at you, Mara, who valiantly suppressed your hacking cough during Rama, Hari redux, but barked like Bonnie Tyler's dog all throughout intermission.
