We’ll meet again

To clarify the present summer break, in response to a few emails to me from readers, the equusasinus.net blog will continue and this break at the end of the long COVID-19 lockdown in Spain is temporary. Reader numbers were the lowest in ten years and it seemed there was such competing demand on everyone’s time that there was no point in continuing to write blogposts with no readership.  There were no responses from anyone, in likes or comments; not even from the usual small regular audience.

I have – instead of writing the blog – enjoyed writing my diary in pen and ink in a lovely tactile hardback diary with marbled end-papers and cream pages, bought in a bookshop in the main square of Assisi (zubboli@libero.it) fourteen years ago… or what now seems like the middle ages!

I am currently exploring the possibility of adding a live webcam to the blog, overlooking the top field and the stable, so visitors can watch Rubí, Matilde, Morris and Aitana live.  When the blog returns to more regular output, I hope the technical challenges can be sorted out and a live webcam will be the “new normal” here!

We’ll meet again…

Vera Lynn (1917 – 2020)

We’ll meet again lyrics in Spanish:

Nos veremos otra vez,
no sé donde, no sé cuando,
pero sé que nos volveremos a ver algún día soleado.
Sigue sonriendo,
como siempre haces,
hasta que los cielos azules alejen las nubes oscuras

Entonces, ¿podrías decir “Hola” a las personas que conozco?
Diles que no tardaré,
estarán felices de saber que cuando me viste ir
estaba cantando esta canción.

Nos veremos otra vez,
no sé donde, no sé cuando,
pero sé que nos volveremos a ver algún día soleado.

Nos veremos otra vez,
no sé donde, no sé cuando,
pero sé que nos volveremos a ver algún día soleado.
Sigue sonriendo,
como siempre haces,
hasta que los cielos azules alejen las nubes oscuras.

  1. Gareth, in my immediate family, we’ve been either Military Intelligence or Fighter Pilots ; or pure civilians. My uncle Michael was RAF and flew Hurricane.

    Don’t take too personally these communications breakdowns, though I do well understand how you worry when they occur.

    God’s Love meanwhile is with neither beginning nor end …

  2. Not worried at all, Julian. As I said, the blog is mainly a diary. Makes a good change to write my diary in pen and ink. The blog can be quite time-consuming. When I return to it I will only give it proportional time based on the evidence of there actually being some audience, and I will be re-thinking the purpose of it as well.

    I am focusing on Spanish nationality paperwork at present – which is now in the crucial last phase – and the blog has little priority, to be honest.

  3. I remember the stationary shop in Assisi! However, It is most reassuring to have some ‘old normal’ donkey news from time to time…
