Trying hard to not buy in to the hysteria surrounding - suffusing - COVID-19. Not really as successful in this endeavor as I would like myself to be. But when a trip to the market results in lacerations or worse in the TP aisle, or some crazed bloody eyed suburbanite hoarding at gunpoint the last of the eggs, well, it's hard to stay strong. Perhaps self-quarantine is best, so as to try to unsee the rampant greed and arrogance our that defines our species.
These are fast and strange time we live in, to quote the Good Doctor, Even the fat lazy Canada geese that overwinter round these parts have grown canines and bicuspids and are turning on the retirees that feed them scraps from their lakeside gazebos, ripping chunks of flesh from the bony fingers of their benefactors. Carnage at the supermarket and the fishing hole.
We here at the House Of Strays wish you a healthy week. Stay well, be kind and helpful to each other - we're all we've got, after all.
Here's a tune from my first CD Wills and Won'ts that features the beautiful piano work of my friend Beth Lederman. "It's All Right"
