August 2021:
I’m Still Here

By Corey Sandler

With thanks (and apologies) to Stephen Sondheim, some 20 months into the bleepin’ pandemic, I’m Still Here.

We’re not yet at the end of our trial by virus, but at least for some of us a new form of normality appears to be in sight. We’ve still got to get the rest of the world vaccinated—the poor, the isolated, and the deniers.

My scheduled August travels have been pushed back a few weeks, into September.

Sondheim once more: Here’s to the people who cruise.

Good times and bum times,
I’ve seen them all and, my dear,
I’m still here.

I got through all of last year
And I’m here.
Lord knows, at least I was there,
And I’m here!
Look who’s here!
I’m still here!
