Wellness In The Time Of Plague, 21st Century Style
I am semi-retired in Philadelphia, PA, and live alone except for my cat, Lucy, who I adopted six years ago. When COVID-19 came crashing down on us back in March 2020, the Governor imposed a stay-at-home order and everything suddenly shut down. I abruptly found myself living my dream. I suppose I should explain. When I was a kid, I was pretty much a loner and sought escapism in books. I was the kid who read at night under the covers with a flashlight. When my parents sent me to take a bath, I would close the door, run the tub, and sit on the toilet lid reading until they would investigate, only to find a full, almost overflowing tub, and me reading a book. Well, now I have no one looking for me, and I'm free to sit in my living room on a comfy chair or sectional, curled up with my multitudes of downloaded books, and read for as long as I please, with no interruptions, no excuses!
