I spent the day decorating for the holidays, always such a joyful journey down memory lane. That contrasted with lockdown starting tomorrow and a red flag warning of fire danger from wind and dryness, so I was out watering again today. It’s odd to hum Christmas carols and think of snow while the windows and doors are open and the plants all say, “Water, please!”
I think of the word evening. I suppose each day lately is an evening, balancing, and smoothing our outlook as we balance new rules and restrictions to wipe the virus out.
