Autumn, 2020
Still here. Still queer.

How many of us are taking the problems and pain and suffering into our own bodies, right now? I wonder.
I think when times are overwhelming that maybe "ourselves" is the only thing we know how to be down about.

Summer, 2020
Well. Wow.

Massive restart. Wiping out my past tracking with determination to start with a clear slate and a fresh page, and other metaphors.

Trying, no, GOING to be gentle with myself, love (at least like) my body, make healthful choices, day-by-day, moment-by-moment, with compassion for myself in these times, compassion for my family and compassion for all beings.

From a team survey...

NAME: You can call me "Night," or you can call me "Glow," but please don't call me late for dinner! Bwaaaaa ha ha! Sigh.

AGE: I don't believe in linear aging.

STATE: Confusion. Though sometimes I'm in Cognito.


KIDS/ANIMALS: Yes, Yes they are.

HOBBIES: Rationalization

TYPE OF WORK: I'm a lumberjack. It's okay.

Cream-colored kittens and crisp berry strudels.
High C's and wide seas
And pesto with noodles
Wild women flying, moonlight on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

SPORTS: Does "keyboarding" count as exercise? Web-surfing? That should count for something. Am I right?

    We were in Peru, and the virus really blew up there. Insane number of cases given the population - like many countries, people don't have money for food or rent if they don't work. Multi-generational families. Medical clinics in rural areas that weren't prepared to hospitalize large numbers of people. And people who didn't comprehend the dangers of this virus. (Sounds familiar, doesn't it?)

    So we definitely are better off here, even if we're in NJ.

    I go out grocery shopping once a week, and we occasionally do something with BIL/SIL. I won't eat inside a restaurant, even though some of them are reopened at 25% capacity. It still doesn't seem safe to me.

    I've found a lot of projects to keep me busy, though.

    Are you still working? Working from home?

    We've ended up sheltering in place in New Jersey, of all places! We were in South America when suddenly everything shut down there, and it took 3 weeks to get an embassy evacuation flight out. Arrived in Washington DC, and it made sense to just take the train up to southern NJ, where my husband's brother and his wife live. We have an apartment in Atlantic City now, near the beach which has been fun. Definitely weird, but what can ya do, right?

    So how are you doing? Hanging in there okay? Are things in Bellingham sort of open again?

    We're living in a strange new normal!
