Well, another bright and sunny day. My project is to read more of Antony and Cleopatra and listen at the same time.

I have started to repaint a small cabinet and will finish tomorrow. Probably the first time I let paint dry between coats; let’s make this last, folks! WIN_20200401_13_01_49_Pro

Also on the agenda:

10 of the best travel podcasts (The Guardian, 1 April 2020) I intend to traval despite being stuck at home. Today I will descend into depths of the ocean in a great white shark cage. Wish me luck.

I will do my exercises with Daisy the bubbly blond and Erin the moody brunette, and I will make shrimp and garlic pasta for dinner. Oh, how the day flies by! If I can catch Cuomo online, that will be a plus – he’s my new crush.  (Don’t tell Stephane). I was wondering why I was coping so well, and then I saw this article and thought it resonated well – it says:

#GenX is Trending on Twitter Because of How They’re Handling Coronavirus—Here’s Why
MARCH 19, 2020

“Gen X tends to be, on the whole, seen as happy and balanced in work life, and active compared with other generations,” says Gail Saltz, M.D., an associate professor of psychiatry at the NY Presbyterian Hospital Weill-Cornell School of Medicine and host of “Personology” podcast from iHeartRadio.

Members of Gen X lived through things like the AIDS and crack epidemics, part of the civil rights movement, and recessions, and they came of age at a time when many households had both parents leave the house to go to work. “Many were latch key kids growing up, learned how to fend for themselves early, and have lower expectations in terms of being taken care of,” Saltz says. “They are noted for a heartiness and ability to soldier on.”

Well – that’s certainly a plus – go Gen X! We’ll show the world how to be a hermit.

Well, I hear Daisy and Erin calling – (or the voices in my head are getting very loud…)

Until tomorrow – take care, and wash your hands!
