Day out and day in and day out
Is what quarantine’s all about.
Days are the same,
A repetitive game,
But beautiful too, there’s no doubt.
Ritual grace is the key,
Rites are what make you free.

As you give thanks
We attended a Zoom wedding in Minnesota last night, sitting on our couch in New York, and Jenny was moved by it, the vows, the preacher’s homily — when he said that compatibility is something you work toward, not a pre-existing condition, she said, “Yes,” which gave me pause since I remember feeling compatible from the first time we met in the spring of 1992. Lunch at Dock’s seafood restaurant on 90th and Broadway. She lived on 102nd. She did most of the talking. That hasn’t changed. I was relieved. Taciturnity is a privilege and I cling to it, as a writer. I need to think. For me, thinking and talking don’t go well together. Last night, in the kitchen, talking to my old pal Pat Hampl in St. Paul, Jenny was making bread dough, and listening to Pat on the speakerphone talk about her brother who had overcome severe learning handicaps to become a highly skilled dental surgeon, J kept breaking in with her own thoughts and corrections and finally sat down and talked to Pat while I held the phone. I held it for about ten minutes and then I said, “You two ought to get together sometime.” I walked away. They continued. I didn’t mind. Finally, Pat asked if I was still there. I was and we said goodbye. I wish this would happen more often.
Off to prayer. Blessings on all.
