A Short Walk

I’m taking shorter walks now that it’s gotten hotter and more humid. I didn’t go outside at all yesterday (except to pace on the terrace), so I was overdue today.

The sunset was spectacular again:

I like the summer flowers, even though — or maybe because — they are not as dramatic as those that bloom in the spring:

I took a lot of pictures of the sunset yesterday and only posted a few so far. Here’s another one:

The infection rate in New York continues to drop while it soars in the rest of the country. Be careful out there!

As for me, things go on pretty much the same as before. I’m relearning how to cook (and getting pretty good if I do say so myself), looking for brick-and-mortar jobs (but when will it be safe to go to them?), watching and reading the news, and trying to get organized.

I guess I’m still in my own private lockdown — I haven’t done any of the things, like outdoor restaurant dining, that the partial reopening allows. Change is hard for me. It took me a while to get used to the lockdown, and now it’s going to take me a while to get used to doing all the things that were forbidden before. Or maybe I never will until there is some kind of sign that the drop in the spread here is not a temporary fluke.
