The title drew me in. I didn't know what to expect, but your notes were helpful, and I was able to look up the movie. Haven't seen it, but you seem to have captured its spirit. I couldn't run an eighth of a mile if the police were chasing me.

I didn't look at the notes until T said something;-) But I liked its simplicity as well as the strong images it brought to mind of ever rising dust from all those activities - meant to comment yesterday but really was out of sorts... feeling better today;-)

thegateless.org Come on over and check out my poetry substack y'all;-) Or if your bored, head to the Zazzle store: https://www.zazzle.com/store/gateless. If you buy anything I lose a bet, so consider that before you violate the digital rules.

Yesterday was a blah day, I struggled yesterday too, glad to hear you feel better today.  I hope you are OK.    I actually had to go in and work at the office yesterday although the door was locked to the public.  But other than taking care of concerns of clients, I couldn't get motivated for anything.  I even did a Taco Bell drive through yesterday and I rarely eat fast food.

Don't get sick
