Afternoon Pages: March 13th, 2021

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the D.C. metro region has been in a state of lockdown. To alleviate fear and stress, my writer's group has put together a daily “morning pages” get-together on Zoom in order to touch base before starting the day. Here's some of my brief thoughts.

That's some PTSD in those eyes right there. Probably lack of sleep.


I biked over to the writer's salon with full equipment and met up with people for the first time since the pandemic began! Hugely irresponsible, but I felt starved for being around people and decided to take the risk. The e-bike was critical to me getting up and running. Turns out, the stairs in some of these old buildings are a bit too narrow to get it all the way upstairs in an easy manner, so I had to leave it in the lobby.

I think today will be a good day. I need to try out some Indian food, or maybe some BBQ from a place that isn't Rocklands. I might even want to go visit the Capitol and see all the troops there and the giant black fence. I want a Capitol tour (not the invading kind just the sightseeing kind). I wonder if the Library of Congress is open or if that's also fenced off.
