This is a short week. End of the quarter. The energy is odd. Mercury is in retrograde. Many people are sick. Even more are unemployed. It’s hard to be optimistic when problems are so big, and you are so little. I suppose I’m grateful that I’ve come to accept that it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when, I get Covid. I’m grateful that I’m healthy, and that I have medical insurance (for now). I’m grateful the library has reopened. And, I’m grateful for backyard fruit.
