Mutual aid 

While the government argues about "means testing", it's inspiring to see groups like @pdxcovid19mutualaid helping people directly in this time of crisis. I'm lucky enough to have a stable job for the time being. Just kicked these folks some $$, if you or someone you know is in a similar position please spread the word! gofundme.com/f/pdx-covid19-mut

dinner at ex boss house 

Enzo (age 9) wanted us to use sushi leftovers to craft a jack-o-lantern. Here’s mine, it’s a tiny onigiri inside with sweet potato / nori / asparagus.

Sunday dinner plans 

I’m going to my (good) ex-boss’s house for Sunday dinner. Should be fun :)

health, parents + 

And my mom is spending her time drawing and making jelly from apples my parents find on walks. They sent us some and it’s so good. Also she’s going to speak on a panel of laryngectomee patients. She’s great at talking with her electrolarynx and I think her docs want to show off how resilient she is :)

addiction, health, parents + 

My dads still going strong not drinking or smoking. He joined a health group at the school where he teaches, and they’re growing micro greens to eat, and he was cooking a squash soup (actually pretty typical behavior for him - he was always a good cook and vegetable lover - but cool that he’s framing it more in a self-care way now)

parents + 

I always feel a little anxious about talking to my parents after having not chatted with them in a long time. I don’t know why. But it’s almost always fun and I always feel better after.

Time for my favorite pastime: journaling at the coffee shop
