Yes - the Lib Dems have always had a Georgist streak, so it's a philosophy I'm moderately familiar with.

The newsletter may be a few days delayed - am in the UK in advance of a big medieval conference, so I'm stressing about conference prep and also covid and it's all quite a lot right now.

Hope everyone is doing well!

O deer. Do you have the covid or just stressing about the possibility of having the covid?

I am just stressing about the possibility - tested negative again this morning so I'm OK so far. It's just that it's spreading super super fast, and I don't want to have to rework all my travel plans and other such stressful things which would obviously have to happen if I did get it, so it's sort of the secondary anxieties of "don't want to let people down" and "don't want to deal with travel stress" as much as the more direct "don't want to get ill" (though that's still a thing too!). It's made more complex when I'm in the UK because I don't really have an obvious base to isolate in here any more, I couldn't stay with parents while having Covid given the risk to my Pa.

Sorry to hear that James, had a similar situation here.

Eye sea eye sea, it definitely does add to travel stress. Hope it all goes smoothly. How are your folks doing?

Parents are okay, thanks :) I stayed with them for a bit before the conference and we went to listen to nightjars (which are cool and very weird) and had a day at the seaside with some nice birbs and suchlike. My sister just had Covid recently which was pretty rough, but she seems to be better now.

I'm now back in Vienna after a reasonably successful conference - I did a talk, a storytelling performance of the medieval Georgian epic The Knight In Panther Skin, helped run the Medieval Caucasus Network reception, and ran the conference storytelling circle. Also saw some people for the first time in ages/met some people I've only known online (incl. Eadgifu the Fair, of this parish, and a couple of the folks who come to Coding Medieval Worlds events).

Unfortunately some of those people now have Covid so I'm curled up at home nervously waiting to see if I'm going to get symptoms developing...
