What can I say? How can I describe what has transpired since my last blog entry? Why didn’t I choose a larger sheet of paper?
The answer to the last question is the easiest: I have few words. I am a swirl of emotions, the combination of which I have never experienced before. It goes without saying, I will never experience them again. That is, when this is all over. For now, it’s like an aura: always there, but not perceptible.
I gave up that New Age mumbo jumbo years ago. But it’s the best way to describe it.
I hadn’t used this typer in a while. Taking it out of the case, I was reminded what a fine looking machine it is. One of the best in my collection. It types really well, too. (Especially after adjusting the touch from 7 to 9. I guess I enjoy a firm touch.) It does have trouble with 0 and (). I’m not sure why other characters aren’t affected. If you have any ideas, please let me know.
The elite typeface on this is the best thing about it. I’ve described the relaxed, rolled back lower case e before. So relaxed, he may just drift off the page.
Back to our present situation… I am one of the lucky ones, for two reasons: I am fortunate to be able to work from home, and I am an introvert. Staying home isn’t as hard for me as for many people. I get all the socializing I need from my wife and pets. (Pets are people, too.)
As I’m typing this, I realize I may not be able to post this until this evening. Our internet is down, along with our television and home phone. A technician will hopefully have a solution for us between 2 and 4 pm. For now, we rely on using our phones as mobile hotspots. But it seems like such a hassle to try to connect our printer/scanner to a temporary hotspot when relief is (hopefully) right around the corner.
I hope all is well in the Typosphere. Stay home and type!
