One thing learned from the pandemic life is the beauty of domesticity, which I rebelled against as a teenager and kept rebelling against into septuagenarianism and now find beautiful. Yesterday I finished editing my memoir in the morning. I took a nap. I spoke to my grandson. I had popcorn for lunch. I read some of Jim Harrison’s poetry. Two neighbors came for supper on the terrace, salad and short ribs. A wide-ranging conversation about homeless who live in the train tunnel under Riverside Park and the social workers who look after them and various other matters. I heard the phrase “Jews of color” for the first time. The sky turned dark, there was lightning over New Jersey. We finished dessert and came indoors just as it began to rain. We said goodbye. I watched two innings of the Twins v Kansas City game at Target Field in Minneapolis and our team scored a couple runs and I noticed in the cardboard cutouts in the box seats the face of the old radio announcer Herb Carneal. That’s my Monday and it is enough. Praise the Lord.
