I did a double-take while scrolling, thinking, “what new feature is this, Twitter?”

Then I remembered that out of frustration I started adding fascists to a Twitter list titled “Fascists.” Now apparently Twitter is promoting it to me. XD

Pink Sky, Pink Sand

My mental health has not been great lately. I’ve been feeling pretty stressed out and all over the emotional spectrum. On Saturday I decided go to the beach at sunset. I always find that soothing. I really liked the symmetry of the pink sky being reflected on the wet sand.

I finished watching The Good Place recently and loved it. They talk about one Buddhist conception of death being an ocean wave that crashes on the shore. The wave is gone, but the water is still there. I thought about that as I watched the waves and took some moments to breathe and be present.

I haven't had a haircut since January. I've been too concerned with the pandemic to get one even when shops re-opened in CA. Now it looks like I might need to wait many more months.
It's not a big deal, but it still sucks.

The other day I was hemming and hawing about whether I wanted to risk it by getting a haircut. Guess that decision is now made. It's been since March for me.

What is everyone making for dinner this week?

Dinner this week? That feels like it’s a year away.

(I am bad at meal planning.)

Beard is coming along nicely.

As much as I’d like to, I’m not going to any cookouts today — playing it safe due to increased Covid cases. Sarah 5 and Elliott dropped off some food and this sunflower on my doorstep, though, so that was nice.
