With everyone getting back to full health and our period of isolation over (unlike Flynn from Tron Legacy) we got out!

Apologies if you don't know the reference. When talking about the world he created inside the computer (the grid) Flynn's opening voiceover states:

"The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships, motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day I got in."

Lockdown is still in effect and will be for the foreseeable future but at least we're now allowed out of the house. And it feels good to be beyond the confines of the same old walls. The garden just doesn't cut it.

While we can't do anything beyond the usual shop, exercise, and work related tasks, just sitting in the car while my daughter and her husband take parcels into the post office is like a revelation. I can imagine that when we come out the other end of all this a lot of people will suddenly have a newfound appreciation and respect for the simple pleasures in life rather than the self entitled attitude of so many.

At least I hope so.
