New Low-Tech Home Page
My regular readers will notice that I have removed the bells, whistles and bright shiny objects from this home page. I have simplified this website and my life during social isolation. The world order has changed. Sheltering and social distancing are abnormal but we have to become accustomed to it. Everything is different now. Staying at home is where everyone should be for as long as possible. I didn’t want to pay $12.99/per month to reactivate my Amazon Prime account, but it was the only sensible thing for me to do.
I don’t like staying at home, I want to go to the beach and the downtown L.A. public library. Nobody wants to stay locked down in our continuing care retirement communities but we have to do it. We have to practice sheltering for our own good and for the love of each other.
The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles
Since you can’t go to the public library on this hot Spring day, here is a PDF of Paul Bowles 1949 novel The Sheltering Sky for your reading enjoyment. The movie version captures the existential despair of the novel. Perfect for a pandemic.
