Day 26

On day 26 I spent my night playing with my hue lights, setting up different scenes and fiddling with different color schemes. Why? It was the most exciting thing I had to do in the middle of this ongoing quarantine.  After my last conference call, I took out the bike.  I rode down to the Brooklyn Bridge, over and back, and headed back to my…

Day 25

I awoke to the conflicting news of a new daily death record, but indications that the hospitalization and infection rates looked like they were stalling.

Day 19

Day 19… When there’s nowhere else to look, you start looking within. My takeaway from 2019: when the mirror’s fractured, you see a lot of different pieces of yourself.
