I'm used to the phrase 'our long national nightmare.' I'm only now aware that I've become used to asking which specific long national nightmare the speaker is referring to.

My personal theory is that the timeline jumped off the calendar and 2020 actually goes from last to this Ides of March. It's almost over!

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair."  -Charles Farking Dickens

Now is the winter of our discontent
Made gloriously worse by this giant orange dork;
And all the clouds of COVID upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.

Mr. Shabooboo: Now is the winter of our discontent
Made gloriously worse by this giant orange dork;
And all the clouds of COVID upon our house
In the deep bosom of the ocean buried.

'Listen, the last stroke of death's noon has struck-
The plague is come,' a gnashing Madman said,
And laid him down straightway upon his bed.
His writhed hands did at the linen pluck;
Then all is over. With a careless chuck
Among his fellows he is cast. How sped
His spirit matters little: many dead
Make men hard-hearted.- 'Place him on the truck.
Go forth into the burial-ground and find
Room at so much a pitful for so many.
One thing is to be done; one thing is clear:
Keep thou back from the hot unwholesome wind,
That it infect not thee.' Say, is there any
Who mourneth for the multitude dead here?
- Christina Rossetti, "The Plague"

I put together anniversary cards over the weekend for friends and family and included the poem above. As I did for them, Merry Quaranversary. May you have safety and health in this second year.

Go crawl back under your bridge.


Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
--"the Scottish play"

Seems apropos.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

None that I am aware of, other than happy birthday covid-19. (in NY)

I remember hearing about covid patients being moved into nursing homes almost a year ago, but it's only recently become an outrage.
