Rationed Sunshine

Dear Liza,

Cats are not quarantined, and can get as much sun as they want!

Having to be inside so much during these beautiful spring days is hard. Our balcony faces north, so we don’t get direct sunshine except when we go for a walk, which we aren’t doing much during these quarantined days.

First dogwood blooms of the season!!

But when we do go out, boy, do we appreciate it! The sunshine. The cats. The flowers.

There is even a new graffiti artist in the neighborhood, who has a distinctive, cheerful style and uses the signature #zzz walking. I have seen two of their pieces, and appreciate the message of supportive silliness.

People are mostly wearing masks now, so we wave to each other from across the street because we can’t see smiles. The feeling of camaraderie behind fabric bits is amazing.

I hope you are staying well and happy.
