The Autumn of Our Lives: A Restart of Grown-up Time – La Voce di New York


 


 


 


It has been dawning on me for a while.  In slow degrees. So not all at once ~ the kind of thing that can really be unsettling.  It has to do with my online presence.  This is on a social platform. It's an old but good one.  No, it's not twitter, or Facebook, or Yahoo.  It's not Myspace, or Multiply, or Ipernity. Most of those have gone by the boards anyway.


I used to be on some of them ~ enjoyed the experience, for what it was worth. I made some really good friends.  Some I still know and hang out with on the last really good, and fine social websites. Where am I going with this?!  Well, because it's not twitter, or instagram, or even youtube, it has a special place in my heart and soul.


I began noticing about a month ago, that the spirit of the place was slowing right down. I could simply 'feel' the difference. It was not something you could trace really, but more like an 'atmosphere' which I didn't like, because it had begun to feel like it does, when something ends...


I recently wrote out a blog, featuring the wonderful camaraderie of the site, and I said it was like a big extended 'family'.... it felt great, somehow very special, and I was really happy that I'd written this special post.  The funny thing is.....


 


That since I wrote that blog, things have been slowly sliding downhill. I can't tell you how upsetting it is, to perceive what many have no idea about. But I DO. I can 'feel' when things change. We don't want change and I kept hoping that somehow we'd all find our way out of the mire...


 


Long story short ~ I don't know how long we have to hang out together. It feels a little like a morgue there. I have been so busy trying like mad to re-create the bond of friendship and even put out a dispatch to talk about the atmosphere and the great group dynamic we share.


 


One person alone with that intention will get nowhere fast. It takes two or more to begin to have an effect on things .... Meanwhile, I'm kind of holding the forte. It's not easy because I can 'feel' the protest for miles - it began right around the time we heard about covid19. To me, the atmosphere changed when it hit our shores, and the this pandemic has wrought havoc.  So many have been affected. The atmosphere has become so heavy I feel I am just waiting for the day it all shuts down: I can't stand it ~ but I must. There is no other way. I suppose I never realised how much I depended on my friendships on the site there...but it's all too true.  I'm hurting, because my perception comes in early ~ before anyone has even recognised there was anything wrong.


 


May your weekend be filled with laughter, sunshine, and good camaraderie...xo
