Yes one can still get Covid. After escaping the virus for some three years, it finally caught up to me. And it wasn’t pleasant. Mostly I was just super tired with some sinus issues. Then as those symptoms subsided the dry cough started up and decided to stay for a couple of weeks. So there went May.
I did get to experience being accosted by an anti-masker. A lady, old enough to know better, confronted me about wearing a mask when I was in public (post- contagion, but she had no way of knowing this!) She indignantly told me that I didn’t need “THAT”. I told her that I had gotten Covid and yes, I did need the mask. Her eyes went wide and she said “You got Covid?” I said yes and told her that I still had a cough that some people found dragged on for weeks. She apologised and moved away.
So the cough is subsiding now, with a bit of codeine and mostly with going without talking and resting for about two days straight.
I am easing back into my former routines of writing and music and gardening/spring cleaning.
I didn’t post Auntie Pander last month so I will post some this month. And I am continuing to work on a podcasting idea for presenting my work.
Hope you can avoid Covid. Stay healthy and keep your mind open.
For the past four months, I have been concentrating on mixing my music with my writing.
It’s a work in progress, yet it is progressing nicely.
I am getting better with my UBass and my lyrics. I have done some “open mikes” with a sort of speak singing as part of developing my own style.
In the meantime, Auntie Pander has been active with her work at promoting Democracy and Moderate Politics.
Here’s what she came up with for April, 2023…
