In the distance...
...church bells from St Paul's Church, faded police sirens, the mild hum of traffic on Baumgartner Rd, and Telegraph Rd beyond that, leaves rustling in the slight breeze – and interspersed within it all, cool autumn air spiking through the open glass door where I sit and have iced coffee.
My headphones are in, and I am ready to put on some music to commemorate this first True Fall evening of 2020. Pandemic or not, I will be getting outside, in the open air, to enjoy this #stlwx – all the while social distancing, and masking-up when necessary.
Speaking of which, I am hoping for no miracle with COVID-19. As far as I am concerned, if a vaccine isn't here today, in the Here and Now, then why the f*ck wait for there to be one and just do what we have to do as biological creatures and distance for a bit, and then when there are less and less cases, things can go back to normal? We all know the answer to that, though. Pure and simple ignorance. The ignorant in this crippled empire are all too proud of their beliefs, and that's just how the cookie crumbles, I suppose.
I'm over it, though. “It” being the ridiculous right wing lunatics who are convinced beyond all shadows of a doubt they have any semblance of influence, or control, or significance in this nation. I'm not gonna waste my breath (or time, I should say) writing a long-winded political post, and I have no crystal ball on what the future holds, and I have no ideologies that in any way fit in with what is “available” right now in the American political spectrum. If a Democrat wins in 2020, OK. If not, oh well. From where I'm sitting, there can't be any unified consensus, widespread agreement, on this issue or that issue regardless of anything, because the genuine issues humans have to face (and pretend they can solve) are FAR greater and more complex than we are capable of handling.
So, let's just all keep dancing to the rhythm of the ticking clock that will surely stop when we do.
