Hip To Be Square

Spring flowers all layered together.

As days go by.

We’ve discovered an interesting little unintended consequence of living in a bubble. Time is melting. Each day is the same as the next. Unless I make notes about what I am doing I have no idea what day it is.

I do have some idea of time because I continue to wear my watch and because every digital thing tells you the time.

I was late to a Zoom meeting because minutes turned into hours and it happened in a second. I looked at my phone and 5pm turned into 6:15pm before I knew it.

Has that been happening to you?

There are other things that have gone upside down. Some for the better.

Most cities around the world are featuring very clean skies. People aren’t driving or traveling much. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I’m getting three weeks to the gallon. Of course, that’s balanced by the crash of the oil industry. Oil is selling for negative numbers which means oil companies have to pay the user to buy it. Many people are getting healthier because they are cooking more. Others are getting more outdoor exercise. Not traveling means airlines are struggling. Airfares are cheap but there’s nowhere to go.

There’s more, I’m sure. Feel free to add to this list.

The picture. It’s really three layered pictures. In my semi-boredom I fill some time by really experimenting with pictures. After all, what have we gained during our bubble time if we don’t learn something new? After I found three pictures that worked togther, I did my usual thing. I started tinkering. The difference this time was that I didn’t head in one direction. I worked backward and forward until I created the picture that I liked.

One more thting. I’ve gone back to using just two phrases in my sign off. All those words were becoming annoying even to me.


Stay safe. Enjoy every sandwich.
