Shadows and reflections

As much as I love my telecommuting “office”, which is “sittin’ on the Green Couch watchin’ all the dogz go by”, I’ve been sittin’ on the GC a LOT in the last month so today I moved out into the Landfill Backyard in the late afternoon. You can see how sunny it was/is. It was something like 55 degrees (F) but I knew I would be sitting in the shade so I wore my balaclava anyway. I did not need glubs. I mean because of cold, not virus.

It was kind of crazy listening to the neighborhood sounds this afternoon. Because it was a warm sunny day and all of the kiddos are on (dare I say it?) “coronacation” (coined by 6th grade Slauson Middle School students). I understand why it’s funny to them – I was that age once too – but…

Anyway I could hear kids playing outside and having fun EVERYWHERE. That reminded me of when my beach urchins were young and THEY were part of that cacophony. The sounds that I WASN’T crazy about emanated from the schoolyard. I dunno what was going on. I thought I heard basketballs and whatever passes for boombox music today. Social distancing? Didn’t sound like it. People are being discouraged from going to playgrounds around here (and touching anything) so I did not go anywhere near the schoolyard.

A company executive has started a work-from-home photo contest. I appreciate his effort but I’m not sure it’s the right thing to do at this moment so I will not submit today’s photooo. Anyway, it’s not all that great a photo. As much as this photooo is a good work-from-home photo, I have better ones, like the ones I have from the moomincabin. They’re just not from now in this crazy situation. But maybe I should submit them anway? We’ll see. Prob’ly not.

    Kids don’t necessarily understand social distancing, but their parents should. Grrr! It seems like the longer we put off the draconian measures, the longer this will last for the rest of us.

    I think that’s a GREAT picture! You ought to submit it!
