Mood On Monday, Upside, Hard To Be Happy
Awareness of the outside world. As has been my habit lately, Mondays are about pondering the moment we all find ourselves in. All really means all this time. I wonder if this qualifies as the first truly global event.
Woo-Hoo! I’ve done BreyerFest! Spent the weekend (virtually) roaming Kentucky Horse Park. Plastic Ponies! People! Seminars! Shopping! Much fun was had!
This never would have happened without a world-wide pandemic. I’m sure we would all prefer that I had stayed home and thousands of model horse fans had spent last weekend partying at KHP without me.
I’m interested in BreyerFest and model horses, clearly. However, it’s a low-key interest. A model here. A blog post there. I would not have taken the time and effort and expense to haul myself to Kentucky. Next time I drive through the gates of the Horse Park, I want to be hauling MY horse so that I can show MYSELF. Hear that universe? [7 Ways To Dodge Nostalgia, “Clearly, I am not as over this as I claim.” Dream Rides]
While I would not have rousted myself to a WorldCon, I am looking forward to participating in virtual CoNZealand that starts later this month.
All manner of opportunities; at such a cost.
The world is on fire. Enjoying myself because folks are forced to go virtual feels as if I am using the flames to roast marshmallows.
A more positive take on the weekend tomorrow.
Stay safe. Stay sane,
