Loops

April 5, 2020

I’m up late, and I’m making scrambled eggs because that’s what I have left in the fridge.

Here’s a foggy sunset in my neighborhood; this was on my way to the grocery store a few days back. I’ll need to go back in the morning.

It’s not as apocalyptic as it looks of course – just apt timing for the photo. The following afternoon was sunny, with plenty of folk playing/walking/running in the park (with a safe distance between them).

The lakefront is closed – leaving us condensed to little geographical zones for exercise.

Every day I walk the same loop near my apartment – around the block, around the park, repeat four times. My girlfriend said I was a hamster on a wheel.

Patterns and rhythm are nice, so I enjoy my “loop”. I’ve started noticing others with their loops around the park. I’ll pass the same person enough times to feel obligated to say hello. There’s almost a sense of community and togetherness about it.

This is life for a while.

Wherever you are, I hope you are doing well. If not, I hope it doesn’t last long.
