For me, the best part of this virus will come in 6 months or so when something strikes me as worth writing about and I come back and re-read them as a whole.
My friend Greg is a trained artist and has spent his adult life drawing directly from inspiration. Most of his work is done using found paper and any marker available. When he’s not drawing from inspiration he’s a very funny and insightful cartoonist.
I met him when I worked in a warehouse in my early 20s and his friendship and insights were and still are very valuable to me.
Tonight was one of those nights. I went outside to have a smoke and watch the the Moon slide to full and back as I have the last few nights only this is what I saw when I looked up. It’s was strange yet eerily calming to see a perfectly formed circle, one that clearly wasn’t or couldn’t have been man made, or ring around the moon. It actually jiggled a story that’s been bouncing around in my head for a few days.
I’ve seen rings before but that was on a cold Cleveland Winter night, what made tonight sp weird was that the sky seemed clear so I wasn’t expecting it at all. But it was most welcome.
Kelly sent me her recipe for brining since my refrigerator has enough room for the turkey. Simple recipe till I read at 11 tonight that it’s best made the Sunday night before Thanksgiving … um … like now!
It actually was fun to see that I had everything I needed except carrots and celery and Bay leaves. for which I apologize for not having on hand. Who doesn’t have more than three bottles or more of it in their spice cabinets right now?
The saga continues …..
