UPDATE_2



Thanks to Ann, I was able to 
re-take my Covid-19 test.





The results came back ...

Negative!




I start back Wednesday.

I am not in
Marathon shape

But I will get the job done.





Not to do so will
leave me without a job! 




I will mostly be by
myself
this weekend.

 So Wish me luck!

Update



Alex Cavanaugh emailed me asking how I was. 

Wasn't that thoughtful and caring of him?  It made me feel not quite so alone.



A few days back, my supervisor called to see how I was doing. 

He has brought me fluids and deposited an Audible check for me.

Speaking of Audible, 

my latest audio book is being reviewed by Audible.  

Once it comes out, would some of you consider buying it? 

The money isn't exactly rolling in.


My supervisor reluctantly told me that he could not hold my job indefinitely.


And that extreme weakness, diarrhea, night chills, and gut-deep nausea were not enough to explain any further absence 

although they are symptoms of Covid-19 ... and I tested positive for the virus.

Scary, right?


I told him I was going to 
get re-tested for Covid 
in a few days no matter how I felt.





The next day, he phoned to say to go back to get retested only if I felt better.



I've been walking up and down the stairs to my apartment 

while clinging to the railings to grow stronger. 

Though I am still weak, I am going to get retested this Monday.


Wish me luck, all right?

At times, worry awakens me at night. 

I remind myself that my times are in the Father's Hand and sing Christmas carols in my head ...

along with these songs:


 Wear those masks 
and stay well, hear?


My protagonist in my new audio book is a socially functioning sociopath 

whose mother taught him to live by the teachings of Marcus Aurelius,  

not the Bible, for she feared he would go all Old Testament on the world.

I've Tested Positive for Covid-19



I have never been this weak before, and I had triple hernia surgery.  

Not much coughing so far. 

Diarrhea is not a pleasant companion



The doctors are right.

Covid screws with your sense of taste!

The Ritz peanut butter crackers 
I tried to eat today
tasted like urinal wafers!


Considering what I do,
it was bound to happen to me
sooner or later.

I, of course, was hoping for later!



I took a tumble yesterday
as I went downstairs to start my car.

It let me know I have to be careful until I regain my strength.



I have a couple of projects looming.

When the first DARK HOLLYWOOD audio comes out. 
please consider buying it

The money is not exactly rolling in!

HOW TO WRITE IN A TIME OF CHAOS_IWSG Post


The level of spin that the main stream media likes to utilize to push their narrative is astounding.

It's the type of acrobatics you normally only see at the circus.



The couple was eating dinner with their family when they heard the rumbling of 300 protesters in front of their gated estate.

Trepass, Castle Doctrine are still rules of Law.

The mob was chanting they were going to kill them and their dog as well.

Who writes the dialogue for these protesters?




 When asked why the group marched on private property, Aldridge, the leader of the march said,

"Just like in many disobedient protests, even in the '60s, you break laws, make people feel uncomfortable. 

We're not doing anything where we're hurting anyone or putting anyone in danger."


Tell that to Steve Lopez, a photographer killed by a BLM protester who opened fire into a crowd.

Or to the driver of a car who was shot by a BLM protester through the passenger window.



The nation was locked-down because of Covid.

Then, because protesters demanded the right to surge into the streets in righteous indignation ...

All was fine with that.

Sadly, viruses don't care about right or wrong.


U.S. set a new high point in daily cases, two months after the previous record.

WHAT HAS ALL THIS TO DO WITH WRITING
 YOU MAY ASK


We have a unique chance to observe Humanity in a crucible of irrational thought, stress, and sociological pressures.




  
Look over the past 100 years and see who burned books,

shouted down opposing thoughts,

punished those who spoke out against Lawlessness hiding under the guise of Law.


Who uses the cover of night to do
what they do not possess
the votes to do legally? 

The Mob knows no Rule of Law ...
Which is all right ...

Until they come for you.


McCarthyism is alive and well ... just in another political party.







 Does humor have a place when writing in a time of crisis?

Especially then, don't you think? 


 You will never again have this opportunity to write while the world around you is at war.  

Don't waste this chance.


 People are scared. It’s understandable.

 Our health and well-being are on the line. And our political foundations seem to be unraveling. 


The Official Democratic Twitter account has linked a fireworks display at Mount Rushmore to White Supremacy!

The 4th of July racist?

I just like the fireworks, 
the potato salad,
and 
the laughter of my friends.

The world is indeed broken,
my friends.

Make good use of
these bad times
by observing,
recording, 
and committing to 
evolve not devolve.
