Oh zoom, you chased the day away...

 

This early ‘80s classic has taken on whole new meaning for me over the ten days or so...!

 

And has also meant that I’ve become all too familiar with this somewhat unprepossessing image on leaving yet another ‘meeting’. Was that one Teams, a Webnex or even, heaven forbid, a Hangout! Loving the conversations, not the new repetitive strain injury!

 

Which leads me to think...

 

How would we have managed this situation ‘remotely’ had it occurred even fifteen years ago - let alone when I started teaching in the late-1980s, and Fat Larry’s band we’re still almost current! I also clearly remember not knowing how to respond to my first email!

 

This was the BBC’s take on the issue...

Still, I suppose the common theme over time is the importance of keeping in regular contact. Which takes me back even further to the 70s...
