ThursdayStaring at myself during zoom meetings just like Narcissus is staring at himself in the water while the world around me is falling apart yet again.
FridayDisappointment creeks into our lives rather seemingly this time of year. After seeing a news story that was announcing that Cluj will not have a Christmas fair this year, to cope with such disappointment my sister began listening to Christmas music.
SaturdayThe temperature suddenly dropped to 3°C and lower overnight so for the entirety of the day, I listened to Anne Carson's lectures and discussions on YouTube. Near the end of a particular lecture, a streamed one transmitted in June 2020, Anne introduced to the streamers her final "short talk", an interactive portion meant to encourage the viewers to say at the end of her speech the word "deciduous?" Upon finishing her "short talk" I found myself listening to the digital silence. "Deciduous?"
Buying a mask for a lady waiting outside the store
A crying child
Two limping men
Not really able to capture any of them on my phone
MondayI went to the city and all I could focus on was a sign on the bus that definitely looked like Samurai Jack and people with icecream are not allowed on the bus.
TuesdayToday I paid someone to look me in the eyes and tell me what's wrong with me. Judging a person by their hand sanitizer is a thing individuals do.
WednesdayOn my way to my bus, I stepped into someone's barf. I least I hope she or he had fun before their body turned on them.
