love in the time of coronavirus*

*With tribute given to Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The traditional Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times.

Maybe I shouldn’t write that, since our Cheeto-in-Chief wants to blame the Chinese for this by calling it an “Asian virus” — can’t pass up any chance to get that racism out there, amIright? Although it did originate in China, and there might have been some things they could have done about it, it’s not like we’re doing such a great job here.

Denial, anyone?

Blergh.

I keep thinking maybe I’m dreaming and I’ll wake up soon.

Keep not waking up.

Have been on the lookout for good news. I am pathologically optimistic, but this one has been a challenge.

Have found some. Here, and here and here. If you have other good news sources, please post them in the comments. We all need reasons to hope!

Really disappointed that there are only 2 seasons of Fleabag. What an excellent show. I don’t know if I’ve ever laughed as much in an equal amount of time, not even during Seinfeld. But it’s also three-dimensional, dark, tender, profound. Now what to watch…. (post that in the comments, too!)

I thought maybe if I got on here and wrote about this I could find some kind of order, meaning, path forward. It is not revealing itself.

And still not waking up.

Maybe tomorrow….
