If this wasn't so high on the wall, I would have gotten a better photo of it but it's in celebration of THE TURNOUT debuting today. It's a signed print by William Gropper. I have four, which I got in an antique store years ago. Gropper did a lot of satirical political work but also a lot involving performance. Anyway congratulations to Megan on her 10th novel. This one is about a down- on- its- heels ballet school, hence the dance picture. So far the reviews are very good.
A very unsettling week here in Michigan for sure. It's getting harder to believe we will ever be out of Covid Days or the attempt to overthrow our Democracy. Or the horrific weather events.
Watching THE SINNER series, which I didn't catch on USA originally. I really think Bill Pullman is terrific in it. Enjoying TED LASSO (Apple). Still haven't decided about THE WHITE LOTUS (HBO). I don't think I am in the right frame of mind for a show about totally horrible people. Watched a movie called THE BEAST, which was compelling if unsettling too. I was trying to rewatch QUIZ SHOW last night but Prime kept going out. I can't watch any of the Olympics because my cable box is still out.
Read THE SILENT PATIENT and found it played a bit unfair. It kept me turning the pages though although I can't exactly say why.
I am gradually getting used to my hearing aids. But although I know it's not true, it seems like my hearing is getting worse since I have been wearing them.
Three things to be thankful for:
We've been having some lovely days, here and there.
I lost eight pounds.
My library is open and I can get books more easily. I have never walked into a library without feeling better.
How's things in CA, NY, FL, MI, WI, TX, and elsewhere?
