Diary 89

Monday, June 15th

For the past three nights or so the otherwise utter tranquility of our covid-19 world has been slightly disturbed by the sounds of fireworks. At least I think that’s what they are, although I could see no soaring cascades of lights. Ever since the Marathon Bomber shootout I’ve been alert to things that sound like gunfire. It just doesn’t feel celebratory to me.  And what would people be celebrating? Has any one else noticed these sounds?

In the news – our “president” wants to stop the publication of John Bolton’s book. A covid survivor gets handed a medical bill of $1.1 million. Something about those two items sums up the situation at the moment, at least for me.
