I’m basically stuck home at this point, leaving only to get supplies. Eileen has been diagnosed as having a disc protrusion. She has an appointment with a pain clinic tomorrow.
Here’s a link to a page of discussion and explanation, if you’re curious.
Stuck at home? Jupe loves being at home with his books and music. Like pig heaven.
I don’t mean to make light of the seriousness of what is happening in the world right now but my life is good.
We had our weekly staff meeting at church via Zoom today.
It was my first use of this App. My laptop’s camera did not cooperate, so I ended up listening to device and using another to connect.
Some of the staff seek a bit rattled by what is happening to us. However, the major feeling of the group is good humor with a dash of disappointment as we watch programs and services get canceled.
This next Sunday, Rev Jen will probably do something similar to what she did last Sunday. (link to video)
This “video” is only audio. I’m only about half way through it, but I seem to be on a sort of Harold Bloom kick. In this video, he vindicates himself a bit to me by talking intelligently about Jazz and Ralph Ellison.
Apparently he knew Ellison. He thinks very highly of The Invisible Man, as do I. He mentioned that Ellison was very of his full name: Ralph Waldo Ellison. Cool.
Bloom also speaks highly of another favorite of mine in this video, Flannery O’Connor.
