Contributed to this blog. Things were a bit busy over the past couple of months, but things are easing up a bit as the end of the year nears.
And what a year it’s been, yet again! A year which started on a wave of optimism when it came to Covid (here in India), only to be thoroughly shaken up when the second wave hit from March to May, followed by another phase of optimism when the pace of vaccination picked up, only to be thrown into further uncertainty with the Omicron variant as we entered the last month of the year… Am I glad this year is coming to an end? Yes. But I wish we could have entered 2022 with more optimism, as opposed to the dread of the third wave hitting us sometime in the early months of the new year…
Anyway, enough of all that. I want to acknowledge the spark that led me to resume writing. I recently came across Beatzo.net. I don’t want to reveal much more about the blog, other than strongly recommending you to visit it and read a few articles. I realise it might appeal to a certain audience only (in terms of age and interest), but what stuck with me was the dedication of the author to maintain a fairly regular blog starting way back in 2002 / 3. However, the last article was posted more than a year ago. I do hope everything is well with the author and he will resume writing on his blog.
I am writing this post from a coffee shop. As much as I have enjoyed the opportunity to spend time with my kids that working from home provided, I have had enough. This café, close to my house, provides a welcoming space when I want a change of scene. As does a WeWork – with special mention to the innovative Christmas Tree that you can see in the picture above!
Here’s wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season, and a great 2022!
