During this lock-down my access to normal social interactions and stupid people has been severely limited. Strange as it seems, I get energy and inspiration from these interactions.
Today we are having the last step of our paver renovation done. Our patio is almost 20 years old and the crop of weeds that grew between them rivals a farmer’s field. The cracks have been cleaned out and new sand put in. Hopefully that will last as long as we are here. The process hasn’t been all that interesting except for me being a crazy person about the pond. It was covered for the major clean-out. The frogs and fish were not happy. They thought it was an eclipse.
Many of the stores have ditched the one-way aisles which didn’t work anyway. Stores do not have mega aisles that are allow for 6 foot distancing. You do your best and if everyone is masked, theoretically the exposure is low.
Demonstrations have been peaceful. I live on the edge of a city with 120K people. Many are immigrants but there are strong community organizations that coordinate with the local government and it seems to work. Or maybe the professional looters haven’t noticed us.
Here’s hoping I come across some crazies for my next post!
