Across the cemetery from where we live, the teenagers have moved out into a tent. They’re cocooning out the coronavirus.
Not such a bad idea, I think.
My daughter, to keep herself amused while I’m working, creates a scrapbook of her friends, taking her time pasting in gold numbers and colored bits of paper.
I’ve lost track of days, of weeks; we’re somewhere in April, and that’s about the best I can do. Some days my older daughter disappears to work; some days my younger daughter disappears for a virtual version of school.
I keep on working. The squill blooms. The peepers sing.
