A terminal for all blogs coming in or going out. A view into my life.
███████ PORTHOLE ███████
SPRING: 12 Baha 177 (31 March 2020)
O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart.
I'm going to try blogging every day using this new template I tweaked from previous blogs. I hope it will reflect me! That said, we'll see how it goes. I'm still struggling with anger, depression, despair ... as life is on hold. I was bored enough to read up on Portuguese verbs today. If I want to relearn Portuguese now is the time.
2°. midnight in Missoula
4°. 2 a.m. in Buffalo where my mother is imprisoned in assisted living. Talked to her today.
7°. and rainy at 8 a.m. in Porto where I wanted to be!
22°. overcast and holding in Taipei at 2 p.m. where it's safer than here.
Let's see: the streets were damp when I looked outside. Gasoline is $1.99/gallon. The westerly breeze brought rain and cooled down my rooms as I had the window open. Taste of rutabaga? My bed seems to be getting harder. Hushed sounds of neighbors in the hallway. Quiet day.
No poetry today!
One flash: "Five Simple Steps [177.11] (298 words)" .
"The Girl on the Boat" by a local writer, Danielle Lincoln Hanna is a prequel novelette to the Mailboat series. It's YA or MG ... not sure which ... Each chapter is told in the first person by one of the characters. So far that's working for me.
"If you acted all right people thought you were all right," Tommy, the captain of the mailboat.
What life? I cooked fry bread for the first time in a long time. Simple recipe and it was edible but I need to work on it.
They have drive up meals but unless I'm interested I may pass. Standing outside is fine if the weather is good and I like what they're serving. It's a two block walk.
Oh ... I wish! But everything is closed. No hanging out with friends for coffee.
I came up with 14 prompts for Elle! and her "JAFBG". I'll revisit them and share with her and maybe even use the milder ones here. It's time to talk politics and religion and anything else that's taboo. If I write something GC or XGC I will put it elsewhere and link here.
This is the headline at MSN: "CDC considering recommending general public wear face coverings in public". When I entered the market last Wednesday I put on my gloves and mask. I was the only one wearing one. This Wednesday (I only go to market once per week) I'll be looking to see whether anyone else is wearing one. I got mine in Taiwan when I was there. Everyone wears masks there when they are ill.
The last round of blogging has ended. Met new people and I have all their blogs flagged as favorites. Quite interactive this time. I won't be joining in in April. My energies will be focused on the Dew Drop Inn and poetry.
Got a nice note from Cass--Spring Spirit :
