The COVID-19 Chapter

Shall We Dance?

Hello? Um, (tap, tap, tap....) Is this on? Anybody there? How do I use this thing? It's been a while. I'm not sure I remember how to do this.

Just Out of Reach

The COVID-19 Chapter, “At Home”: DAY 10&11 This day feels different. This is the first day, to me, since I began writing that feels like we're solidly in this.
