The Four Whore's Men of the Apocalypse

Thunder last night. Thunderstorms all day and all night tonight. Currently, it's 58˚F, and we still have a flash flood watch.

Tonight I can say that today I wrote 1,179 words on a new piece for Sirenia Digest, which I'm calling "The Great Bloody and Bruised Veil of the World." It's a start. Tonight is the first time I've been able to report a daily word count since March 6th, the day that I finished The Cerulean Alphabet. That's how bad things have been. Afterwards, I began rereading Jeff VanderMeer's Southern Reach trilogy and made it through chapter one of Annihilation.

Lots of things I could say, like how I had half a can of deviled ham for dinner, with five olives, or how I finally know what it means to be claustrophobic, or how there's black mold taking root in this building, but who really cares, so...I'll just move along to the nightly plague report.

As of this evening, the ADPH has confirmed 4,903 cases of Covid-19 in the state of Alabama, with 682 cases in Jefferson County and 269 cases in Shelby County.

  • "...even if we're just dancing in the dark."

    A beautiful, sunny spring day. We made it to 80˚F, when you factor in the heat index. So, during the long silence, there were books. See the photo…

  • In the saddle again? Possibly?

    It's a lot harder than I imagined it would be, getting the LJ working again as a going, day-to-day concern. I almost let it lay fallow too long, I…
