I'm Still Here
Debated going to Josh's yesterday but decided against it. Just too hard to social distance inside and rain was forecast. And I really don't think I could wear a mask for any length of time. I know it could easily be my last mother's day but venturing out just makes that more possible. It is all too terrifying to think of the chaos and madness going on at 1600. There has got to be a way to get him out of there and get someone who can handle this virus in there. NOW. November is too long to wait.
Watched a few old movies: Lean on Pete and Here Comes, Mr. Jordan, with Robert Montgomery and Claude Rains stick out as the best.
Reading The Red Lotus by Chris Bohaljian. Set in Vietnam today. Still wading through Hidden Valley Road, which has got to be the most depressing book I've ever read. Imagine having eight kids with schizophrenia. Finishing up Dance of the Happy Shades by Alice Munro and she is a genius. Well deserved the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Watching a few series I like on TV. Normal People on Hulu and The Eddy on Netflix. The Eddy is about a jazz club in Paris. Each episode concentrates on another character. Great atmosphere and music. And Paris!
And I close out each day with an episode of Schitts Creek. Good way to go to bed. I need to find another show soon.
How about you?
