Today changed shape rapidly under the unique pressures of a possible COVID contact. It is the new normal, that the possibilities of the week can be entirely upended and reframed by a single careless act.

I am watching a lot of movies at the moment, and some of them are movies about books and writing. I am reading about writing, and I am writing. I have friends with books out, and I have books of my own and others that I am getting ready to publish. It’s exciting.
The change was a brief thing. I hat these waves that come through and make me forget that I know how to swim. You have to talk it out and then you will calm the waters. I probably do have to go and get tested again — we shall see.
