What a day. I carried the same ennui through it that I have so many other days.

How much longer?

The closures, lock downs, shelterings in place will last til the politicians say enough, as if they and their hand-picked Wizards of Epidemiology know anything. Pay no attention to the fact that this is an election year in a bitterly polarized country.

The power walks keep me on the path of sanity, filled as they are with my neighbours, and birds, and dogs. I welcome the sweat and the water at the end. It is a little thing over which I have control, as I walk the streets, with such little traffic.

J has her 10PM-5AM shift tonight. She left with the lunch I packed and her iced tea.

Now I am alone. Just at a different time.
