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.



  1. you're not fond of change whatsoever?

    i hope you get well soon.

    1. No, not all change. Just ones that I don't like.

      Funny - things like "new" and "change" are often imbued with positive connotations. Perhaps because they represent freshness, the continuance of progress, growth.

      But surely you'll agree not everything new is for the good, and not every change is for the better.

      And thanks for the well-wishes. I'd better get better soon ;)

    2. i don't like change if it interferes with my routine work. slightly OC kasi ako. LOL!

  2. Hey, Nate! Thanks. Feeling a bit better today, thanks to science and technology.

    And the fact that the RH Bill passed woo too.

  3. reading well-written blogs really make my day..

    i also am not that enamored to change. slow ako magreact to them..

    get well soon dude.
