Young, wealthy, urban people discovering trees and cooking during pandemic. Ok.

I have to say, I've really, really been enjoying the peace and quiet of being able to just hang out at home rather than have to go socialize with my wife's friends.

Whatever gets more people outside, I guess. But we aren't supposed to be doing that. A paradox.

It is much more fun to be outside at night. I was lucky enough to spend a few years in a big little city with a marathon sized trail system. Wish I could hike there more often.

I was thinking about how hot and dry it is in the northeast this year. Every year it seems that Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day blur into one. I realized that for the last thirty years I was stuck in a cubicle or office with A/C and artificial light working on a computer. This is the first summer I've experienced since Reagan.

Sent home in March, laid off in July. I've been doing volunteer work at a Scout camp.

Mosquitos, heat, ticks with lyme disease?  Fark that noise.

If nothing else, thank goodness Covid happened in the age of internet and online trading.  Social interaction is overrated.

Isn't learning to enjoy these things the entire point of a Humanities degree?

It's amazing you find the will to get out of bed. Living in a paranoid bubble must be a blast.

That, and realizing that our stories are really a chorus, so we should stop hurting each other. And it makes for wonderful dinner guests.

I guess I'm tired of reading about all the discoveries being made, things many of us have been contemplating for years while the majority have been helping the kardashians install a new pool.

Gardening, companionship, wonder. Glad she found it. Don't serve it to me as something new. And I think she dissed my favorite poet by dragging her cat into the discussion.

There have been a few major wars in my lifetime. Let's just keep things in perspective here.

An old girlfriend of mine writes like that. I've never believed in the authenticity of that kind of willed cheeriness. It seems to me to be a kind of hysteria.

/narrow escape, chums.
