Post 3720 - Where Have You Been?

Well, hello there, handsome.

I must tell you that I deeply regret not having written much lately. I have not been feeling well. Many a night, it was all I could do to get home, throw some food down my throat, and fall asleep in front of the television. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

I am on some new medication which causes some tiredness, but I did not reckon with this much.

I am also dealing with some issues in my private life, which I remain unable to share with you here, yet. One issue in particular has been very time consuming, taking up hours and hours of my waking life outside of work, causing some of the tiredness I mentioned in the second paragraph.

But, this evening, we said the heck with it all. We had a nice dinner at the sushi place on Queen Street, before we went kitty corner to the library, to see the Anna Mae Pictou-Aquash documentary about her life and 1976 murder. We both learned a lot about what happened to her, but were disappointed to learn that the film came out in 2002. In the intervening years there have been several developments in the case to move the file forward, but there has been no follow up documentary film about those developments. The National Film Board has not deigned to fund this project, which is deeply disappointing. I would almost suggest that the filmmaker approach Netflix, because they seem to fund all kinds of things.

Anyway, after the film was over, there was a question and answer, where we learned more. The library was about to close, so we meandered our way up Spring Garden Road, where we ran into an old friend, long retired from our work, and chatted with him for ten minutes or so. We found our way to the car, and drove home.

It was a lovely evening. We don't have enough of them. We will take advantage of more of these free evenings at the library, and other places, and soon.

I have missed writing these blog posts so much. I have missed you. And I have a steady resolve to improve my output, staring in June, which is just a few hours from now.

I big you all a wonderful evening, and I will talk to you soon.
