Things I will miss when the current lock down ends: Long walks with Jeter and the feeling that he finally is getting enough of my attention. Roads with less cars and sidewalks with more people. Eating meals when I’m hungry without regard to time. My comfort with going barefaced. I don’t usually wear very much … Continue reading Miss. Lilly edition.
I’ve put together a few links to my posts over on CivMix. They’re a reflection of the current Covid situation and express some of my concerns, past times and where I’m finding some comfort.

I was 10 when that version was released and … Continue reading A Star is Born – in two takes
