I’ve not been here.
I’ve been working, and when not, I’ve been walking, and when not, I’ve been reading.
Reading in my chair.
Reading under a blanket.
Reading my way through winter and the Pandemic.
On Zoom calls colleagues chat up what TV series they’re binging. I remain on mute with nothing to say.
In the evenings, after supper, Hubbs finds me back in my chair, with the TV off.
Savoring the silence.
We chat, he is thankful for sports and news, and me for my books.
I’ve been reading.
- Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.– Mason Cooley.
