Forget the whole 'pivoting' state-of-affairs my friends, life changes direction so quickly now-a-days that it's just one long endless pirouette!
I'm spinning so fast I can't spot a single secure event in our future, and the recent past has become quite a blur.
When we can be blissfully planning for tomorrow at 3pm, then stockpiling toilet paper by 5pm, to be locked in at 8pm, the word 'uncertainty' takes on a whole new meaning.
I guess the meanings of lots of words have been turned on their heads lately, and the most predictable thing about life in 2021 is that it will be unpredictable; making unpredictability absolutely predictable - if you catch my drift.
We are certainly, certain to have uncertainty.
Fifteen-year-old Tiani's role as a cheerleader with Horsham Arts Council's 'High School Musical' is no more.
Seventeen-year-old Yasinta's statewide General Assessment Test (GAT) in relation to her Year 12 Further Math subject has been postponed for the third time, and nineteen-year-old Katianna may never sit in an actual lecture theatre on campus at university in 2021, as lessons have again moved online.
Twirling around at such speed has me so dizzy I lurch dangerously from silly giggly to cranky cross.
I'm exhausted while feeling that I'm not doing enough.
I've lost track of what day it is, but I feel I need a day off. When the shops are shut, I wish I could go in, but when they are open, I'm too tired to bother.
I don't want to admit that this global pandemic is wearing me down, although I think it might be winning a little at wearing me out.
We all took to Zoom like fish to water way back when, didn't we?
Now when someone suggests we take a meeting online, I feel like I'm being asked to drink month old lukewarm fish tank water through a straw while the fish are still swimming in it.
The answer is an extremely polite, "Are you serious?!"
And I'm fully vaccinated.
It didn't bother me one bit, but my husband took to his bed for a whole morning, so I definitely don't want to catch that virus, although at the speed I'm whirling around en pointe the virus might just struggle to catch me!
