How to Keep Sane in Pandemic Times

Keep things as close to normal
as normal,
read poetry,
write poetry,
use library take-out,
Jack’s homemade bread
the family meatloaf
friday night homemade pizza
time at the lake with lots of space
forest bathing by the Appalachian Trail
openculture.com
meet friends outside on the porch
shop only for groceries
and bourbon
keep connected with friends on zoom
keep ongoing projects ongoing
