Little did I know my dog would eat one of the puzzle pieces..and that it would already be missing a lot of pieces. Very disappointed. ):
It's day seven.
As you've probably heard, COVID-19 has reached Pontotoc County. The eery weather provokes an unsettling whisper in the air around us all. We don't all address it but it weighs heavily among us all.
What will America do to address the deaths caused by the pandemic but not the virus itself? The working class in which so many are now filing for unemployment because of businesses shutting down.. Their bills still need to be paid. Those suffering from depression and anxiety who don't handle isolation well... Both of these things worsen in the midst of the pandemic and death by suicide will skyrocket. It is so sad to think about. I cannot stop thinking about it.
To lighten things up a bit..
This morning my mom made avocado toast with a fried egg and bacon on top.. It was delicious and so so pretty. I had it alongside a glass of pure pomegranate juice. Which I have decided to make it a habit to drink at least one glass of pomegranate juice a day. I did it all last summer and maybe its in my head, but it made me feel really good.
It's currently 11:03 pm. I am listening to Tom Petty because I am in a weird somber mood. I got to see him on my 18th birthday. My birthday is on 4/20 so you can only imagine what many did as the first note of Last Dance with Mary Jane rang out. I had always wanted to see him.. He died just a few months later, still I don't like to talk about it. A legend.
Music from today..
