The sun had a circle around it. I’m sure there is science as to why, if you are one of the dwindling believers in that sort of thing. I saw it, photographed it. And now I’m about to print it. Just for me. Small, taped or glued into the journal as a reminder.
I like small things like this. Just moments. Nothing fancy. No need for status updates. Just point, aim and fire. One of my favorite moments of the Trump presidency was when he went outside during the eclipse and then did what every single human being was told not to do. He looked right at it. Stupid is as stupid does.
I’ve been staring at the sky a lot too. But not at the sun. A few days ago I noticed a star during the middle of the day. At first I thought it was a UFO. I wondered if I could shoot it down, stuff the aliens, develop a roadside attraction and get rich. But then it didn’t move. And it didn’t move. And I realized it would probably be armored and if I took a shot at it they might vaporize me or worse yet abduct me and force me to perform sexual acts with their race. (I have a lot of time to think about these things.)
I want to take a moment to thank all those on the frontlines of World War Virus. There are SO many people who are kicking ass and holding fast. Food services, medical, fire, law enforcement. I’m next to useless at this point. My immune system is about as reliable as a 1982 Ford Pinto. So, I’ve got to find other ways to help. This might come AFTER whatever happens. Don’t know but the plan is starting to spin. Good luck out there.
