Monday in the Reeds


The headlines, if you read them, are certain to put your mind in the reeds, surrounded like a small bird by the spread of Covid-19 after Thanksgiving and Trump’s lying rants. For the capper, yesterday I read a lengthy article in the NYT about a highly praised “expert” on the science of happiness who jumped to his death from a 267-foot high tower some 40 years ago. More reeds. Life isn’t easy these days. Sheltering-in is not for everyone. But it is still wonderful to be alive. Peace.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
