THE TABLE HAS BEEN EMPTY
The first dinner after "lockdown" was at this very sparse table, with a favourite cousin; three of us still social distancing at a table opened up for eight. Fortunately, all three of us are quite vocal.
We're beginning to see normal again in Australia (at least), while aware that stillness and solitude continue for friends and relatives in America, France, Britain and Denmark.
I've taken up the keyboard again, at last. For many months, as well as suffering from a general numbness, it seemed irrelevant to talk about, even with a wry smile, the placing of cheese on a plate, getting children to eat their greens and holding their cutlery "correctly" , the trials of feeding the sour dough starter.
But I continue to obsess, to cringe, to observe and to be moved. I'll be working on...

I’m looking forward to your many musings, especially the good, the bad and the ugly themes

The Indian dilemma
Great to see your comments. You are spot on and we must organise a round table discussion. Why has Indian (bastardised) become the go-to ethnic? As you say, why sweet. What drives me mad is the excessive hot for the young macho Aussie male . Is it a competition?
