Today’s view

Heavy rain and wind today. I stood at the window and watched raindrops slide down the glass like I was six years old again. My thoughts echoed the weather, petulant and gloomy. What am I doing with this life? This season of crisis could be a time to rethink everything. Make some big decisions. Go back to school. Become a nurse, a scientist, or a mystic. Leave America behind and walk the earth.

“Make something for lunch,” she told me. “Start there.”

Midwife – Anyone Can Play Guitar

From Forever | Antiquated Future, 2020 | Bandcamp

A song of possibility from one of my favorite artists. Vapor trails of dream pop and beautiful fuzz. Prayer Hands was a highlight of 2018 and now a new extended-player is here, dedicated to a departed friend.

Each night in 2020, I wrote a short post for a series called Notes From the End of a World because I wanted to etch these days into my memory. Before the world changed completely.

Interstate Scene 6: It was a run-down joint where time stood still and probably slid backward.
