Back from an unsolicited hiatus

I almost have to reintroduce myself.
We had some setbacks of a financial nature here – think “a sudden 30% drop in income”, which sent me into a period of stasis lasting a few weeks, during which I was staring at the light at the end of the tunnel – which looked suspiciously like the headlights of the oncoming train.

It took some time to get out of this lethargic period, but two days ago I touched my bass for the first time in two weeks.
Needless to say, I did not make any progress on the course either. This, and my absence, has evidently worried some of you (which I find surprising as well as touching). But I’m back in the fold.

My current predicament is that I will have to remain in stasis for some time – not just because of the virus lockdown (which is currently voluntary in the Netherlands), but also, and mainly, because I need to recover from the completely unrelated ailment that hit me in late November. Hopefully I can combine the two.

SOOOOO
I had planned to make a little video called “How I beat Billie Jean into submission”, and as of right now, that’s coming along nicely. I need to shoot two more segments, then edit it into something coherent, and then it’s done.

So… I’m back. Thanks for inquiring!

Sorry to hear you’ve been struggling. I hope things settle down and get back to some level of normalcy soon.

I’m looking forward to that Billie Jean video. :+1:

There won’t be any gore. The video will mainly demonstrate the weapons and techniques used, and not much of the actual kicking and flailing. :wink:

They came looking for me too. This forum has become quite the community, hasn’t it?

I hope you’re managing all of the stuff, and making progress in all the right places.

Feisty, she is. :wink:
