This would be just another day in the week for me but most places were closed today and the few friends I have were busy with family and friends. Sometimes an individual ends up as an outsider not by choice.
I decided to spend the day profitably and bang out another edition of my print zine, Ray X X-Rayer, albeit a short one, one sheet - two pages. With that printed and out in the mail earlier in the afternoon, I'm using the quiet evening time to reformat the zine article and post them here. Usually I do the opposite: blog posts first, then reformat them for a zine.
I don’t know how coherent my writing is today because I’m suffering from a one-two punch of allergies and a cold, sneezing and coughing. The cold started last night. How appropriate. Like I say, timing is all about the comedy.
At least the sun was out today. My computer is near a window and the streaming light felt good while I was working on my zine, even though was around the freezing point outside. Better than the usual cold gray gloom that I see most days during the six months of winter around here.
Even with the sun out I was shivering while walking over to the Post Office, despite being bundled up. I must have some sort of bug if my energy and resistance is that low. But at least I got out of this efficiency apartment / monastic cell for some fresh air.
Now time to reformat and post my latest articles to follow this one.
