winter virus

Lots of people are getting hit with winter virus in Montreal. Lohbado is into round two of the battle between his immune system and viruses that are becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics. This time the cold is deep in the chest, tons of cough and burning when the coughing happens. He coughed up cakes and wondered if new creatures would emerge from the phlegm to take over the planet.

That could be a horror movie, Revenge of the Killer Virus. A virus gathers forces to take over the world, while rendering humans weak, unable to eat, nauseated and with migraine and joint pain and an inability to think clearly.

winter light

Amaryllis after a few weeks began to ripen and decay. Even a wilted dried amaryllis radiates beauty in the pale winter light as it snows outside in Montreal.

wear a wig

Pinkie on Wednesday
Pinkie woke up uneasy and nearly passed out after looking in the mirror. A voice echoed from the faucet as water flowed down the drain: Wear a wig!

Pinkie put on a purple wig, added a smile, a sparkle in the eye. In this way Pinkie prepared for Wednesday. Hurry before Wednesday dissolves and Thursday takes over.

keeping it together in winter

Ha ha, yeah, ha ha, yeah yeah, let's get together. Dance. Play a little music. Smile. Strip down to essentials. Winter has a way of slowing things down. One feels drowsy. A nasty virus takes over. Cough, sneeze, fever, sore throat, aching joints, close your eyes and dream about paradise. Wake up. Start again. Smile. Laugh. It's ok. We're in it together. It's part of living in a northern land, the joy of winter, an overpowering experience. Take off your pants and ride the metro.

winter topics of conversation

Another cold and snowy winter happening in Montreal, Lohbado reminded himself to avoid unpleasant topics of conversation, as he had a tendency to get morbid sometimes.

beautiful amaryllis

Lohbado raised a silver chalice as a gesture of appreciation and respect for the beautiful amaryllis. Flowers to brighten the mind and add warm tones to a room, the flowers were like doorways to infinite nature.
