Just popping in to show this blast from the recent past that I was amused to see turn up, one of the many times I dropped hints about clutter and hoarding on social networks while not being totally open about it until writing my GIANT ESSAY here in May. Got mostly good response on this post, the response that was less positive, well, that’s some of who I wrote the piece for. (Whether they read it and thought about it, I don’t know. I do think the pandemic has made some people understand the value of home and having things you like around you a bit more. And that valuing experiences…may be a good idea, except when travel and concerts and sports and theater and lectures and restaurants and bars are shut down or risky to do.)

Officially too stressed out to write, as the bad situations in life are piling up AND I still can’t reinstall the apps I rambled about in the previous piece. I’ve tried the Play Store and the Galaxy Store and still don’t have Messenger, the main way I’m in touch with people. I need full connectivity to be able to get the things done I need to this week, which includes finally posting that damn essay…Let me just share a random photo, one I put on my desktop when I started here and wanted to try out adding photos to pieces, but didn’t know if this one was interesting or relevant enough. Chicago, summer 2020.
