I came home to see if I could clear my head and solve some problems. Some context: I have an in-progress herniation (degenerative disc disease - not uncommon) which has been a problem for me since my early 20s. After a couple of minor crises (in retrospect at least; at the time, my life was even more chaotic and I didn’t think in those terms) it settled for a few years, and then in 2014 knocked me on my ass literally.
I am in Berlin. Toronto is a great city, but North America is shooting itself in the face daily. The plague escalates while the world continues to try to act like we’re coming out the other side. This will change, and reality as always will triumph. In the meantime I will start writing now and then.
