Ah, dang it. Like death and taxes, unwanted summer electoral politics are inescapable.  Rumour has it that our PM Justin Trudeau is determined to call a snap election, reportedly to be held on September 20th. Why? Because he believes that doing so at this time will ensure his party can win a majority government, allowing him to avoid what he has been calling “opposition obstruction.”

I’m still marveling at how much more relaxed the world has become since January 20th Feels like a luxury, not being on high alert every minute of every day, and I’m loving it.

As the fog of negativity lifts, there’s time to look around and marvel at how much our lives have changed, and will be forever changed, by our experiences. There’s no discounting that the very framework of our lives has been reworked by the ravages of COVID-19. Nearly everyone has lost someone dear to them to the virus, and many who became ill with the disease may have healthcare issues impacting them for the rest of their lives.

I am sitting on my battered black Ikea couch, writing this week’s column a). Like so many of you, I am self isolating, driving the Cat nuts, but doing the right thing, at least in my mind. Very few people have any idea just how far this will go, but the ramifications are truly alarming, and only a complete fool would publicly voice their prediction (looking towards Washington D. C., I sadly shake my head.)

I have been, how you say…laying low this past week or so. Gearing up for a busy July and August and trying to wrap up couple of projects as well. I did manage to make it out to see a couple of bands but I’ve been spending a lot of time working in my backyard and around the house. As an AirBnB host, I’ve also had a few guests. I now have my “daughter” Colleen staying with me for the next three weeks, a visit I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time. …..and I yes, I have another bee in my bonnet.
