Quarantine, as in my present state of affairs. Well into my second month. Only leaving the house for grocery and the two or three days of restricted work. Life in my small studio apartment just gets smaller and smaller What makes it worse is that the cat thinks she rules the roost, leaving me no privacy. Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide, well, except my closet.

I have been carving in wood. I’m on my fifth walking stick and one small end table. I have done numerous pencil sketches and very little writing. One of the reasons for that is all the hubbub with the coronavirus. It so consumes my thoughts, added to the past three, going on four years of bull shit, which I call DC Follies. Both sets of circumstances are closely linked dominating all my thoughts. It’s all I think about, it’s all I write about, and I am tired of it. I need to give it a rest…

    Nick, Don’t let the pussy scare you and come out of the closet already…
    Sorry man, Had to. You just made it too easy.

    Hope all is well. I hear ya, Living alone sucks at times like this.
    I’m not one to live my life based on fear, so I’m ready to face it and deal with whatever comes.
    I honestly think its way overblown and handled wrong, but trying to comply as best I can because I would hate to be someone that got it and gave it to someone else that had a poor result.

    Anyway, I agree. You just got to set yourself some personal limits on how much you are going to give it. I think you still need to stay informed, but just set a limit or schedule for it and don’t let it consume you. Make a list of other topics to blog about, and drive yourself to dedicate to that each day to take your mind off the stupid CoVid shit.

    Keep being well brother and call me if you need an ear from another human being.
    I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m living in an old Twilight Zone episode.
    Yesterday, I almost got in a fight with this freaky looking dude that stares at me in the mirror when I brush my teeth every morning.
    And I’m not sure, but I think he was watching me take a shit the other day too, because when I stood up, there that creepy fucker was in the mirror again… lol

    1. Caught me in a moment. I have those from time to time. Mainly I’m just frustrated with what I an seeing in DC. You might have a point there are areas the numbers are small. If you look at 100,000 dead from coronavitus in less than 6 months that is a big deal.
