I ask people I call, “Keeping busy? Staying healthy? Going nuts?”

After de-pilling my socks and sweaters, phoning, emailing and even writing letters; after washing the mail, groceries and behind my cat’s ears; after making 40 masks just to calm all my fears, I started “discovering” things I’ve owned for years! Fascinating, frustrating, liberating, hibernating, “clautrophobiating.”

We are a spoiled society that requires exterior things for happiness. We need to rethink our values to get through this deadly madness.

Even though we should not be together, with some thoughtfulness, we can get through it together.

Hope you are all well at the Alameda Sun.

Thank you for being you. You are much appreciated.

The Millionaire was a television program in the late 1950s and early ‘60s. It offered a glimpse into the dynamics of need and appreciation, giving and satisfaction.

I find it difficult when approaching an intersection with a green light, only to whiz by appeals from a person of obvious need, leaving me sad and ambivalent.

Occasionally I double back and have success “helping” them.

I find joy in thumbing through the Alameda Sun on Thursday afternoons. Hoping this donation will help your operation of the Sun.
