Guys, I have nothing. My inspirational well is dry right now.
I have a million things racing through my head and I’m exhausted.
I miss having three therapists.Right now I don’t even have one. I should probably change that. And for some reason, my space bar is acting up RIGHT NOW.
There really is nothing hockey related going on right now. I don’t feel like talking about this season- past, present, or a maybe-future- because to me it’s all over. I had some optimism that it could continue until I was reminded on Sunday that the players haven’t officially voted on the NHL plan to resume play. It feels like a lost season and I’m also somewhere out in the weeds with it. Or maybe I’m up a tree or in a pitcher of water. Something like that.
I could talk about which hockey players/ teams/ associations have come out with statements about current events but I just don’t feel like doing that. It’s not a time to praise and pat groups of mostly white guys on the back for being sensitive enough to put forth a statement while continuing to not use their platforms for real change. Honestly, I feel the same about myself and I have no real platform, just thoughts, feelings, and a lack of knowledge about how to help.
So, I call on you all to come up with ways to entertain us, to distract, to find those moments of joy, and to make us all laugh.
