@Wes Hollow sorry to hear that, yee gods, it sounds like 2020 is going be another one of those really aweful years when everything goes wrong, or becomes wronger. I hope not.
@Mirage thanks for the sympathy, we're trucking on with the radio therapy, but things are a little exhausting at the moment, indeed part of that is staying at my parents, since whilst they're lovely, my mum does go through phases of suggesting an idea she thinks is for my, or sometimes my lady's benefit, and if we're not absolutely behind the idea she proceeds try and steam roller us into it with extreme prejudice, something for which I confess does rather try my tolerance when it happense repeatedly.
I'll say for both myself and my lady, not reading would be a little like not eating, possible to survive for a while, but damnably uncomfortable and likely to cause serious harm if prolonged .
I always have a book on the go, though I can break this for audio dramas occasionally, and of course my lady and I are usually reading something together too. Right now we're doing Tad Williams memory sorrow and thorn, one of my absolute favourite fantasy series ever and one read twice before, though for my lady it's the first go around. I've also just finished my last review, for the cold moons by Aeron Clement; think of a rather substandard watership down with Badgers. , This means I'm giving the Doctor who audios a break and back to a novel.
I'm doing the night circus by Erin Morgenstern, a book which has been recommended to me several times by different people, about two magicians protege's who are supposed to duel each other in a magical circus, but wind up falling in love instead.
The writing style seems absolutely beautiful, but I can't say much else.
gaming wise, I've gone back to Cosmic rage with occasionally dips into dreamy train. Actually Cosmic rage I'm enjoying very much at the moment since several of the issues I had previously have been fixed.
I've not actually tried cursed lands yet. I believe that is the sister mud to lament. Lament seemed interesting, but what to actually do in the game or even basic things like how to find resources was a trifle impenitrable.
With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
