So…..Here We Go!

After allowing procrastination to steal much more time than it should, my fingers are finally doing some tapping but my brain is still asking, “Why?”

Why are you doing this when the COVID-19 pandemic is shaking the foundations of society?

Why are you doing this when there are so many more important and urgent things demanding your attention?

You could be grandad – you really enjoy that and seem to be pretty good at it.

You could playing your bass.

You could be playing golf.

You could be delving into your ancestry.

But you’re not!

There better be a good reason why!
