Tues. 03.24.20 – As the Corona Turns…
✓ Staying Inside
✓ Am used to this really as I have worked from home since Sept. 2000
✓ Only going out for a Walk with Social Distancing and some replenishing at the market
✓ Doing my best to get 10,000 steps in that One Walk with Social Distancing
✓ Staying 6 ft / 2 m from everyone while waiting in line at market
✓ Washing hands with Dr. Bonner’s rose castile liquid soap, as it is less chapping.
✓ Dancing while singing while washing hands. Helps with steps. The song has mostly been the Hamster Dance. Be v. afraid. Be glad you are not near me.
✓ The background processes of my brain are stressed and giving me weird stress dreams.
✓ Insomnia from 2am – 6am is now officially back after a few years of remission.
✓ Was mad at neighbor for holding an all night drum circle session, then realized on night #3 it was my fridge.
✓ Instead of adding focus, any caffeine is now scattering my brain to the wind.
✓ Am lucky if I get 3 good productive hours out of the day in terms of computer / tech / development / writing work.
✓ Doing my best to only check the news & Twitter once a day, preferably in the morning.
✓ Have closed all windows and turned on allergy air purifier as local trees are having a lot of sex. Pollen from said tree sex is making me sneeze and cough. This then leads to a brain spiral.
✓ Making strange bean soups with odds and ends from the fridge
✓ Follow bean soups with fruit. Because somewhere back in the distant 1970s California macrobiotic craze I was told as a child not to mix beans and fruit.
✓ So bored am almost excited to see what the beans and fruit will do in my already challenged digestive system.
How are you doing?
