Art & Life


April 9, 2019


Tuesday. Lights out not all that long after nine to awaken at five-fifty, the sleep uneven, but seemingly enough. Up and out the door to walk to breakfast under clear skies and a warmer temperature, not wearing a sweater for the first time. Spring may be here. Arrived before seven, the restaurant open, the day ahead.

The plain waffle with sliced bananas and strawberries, fruit cup and coffee for breakfast, finishing up at close to nine to walk back to the apartment under a bright sun. Nice to walk under clear skies and a bright sun, you'd almost think we were in California on days like these. Home to take the usual selfie and kick yesterday's entry up to the web after a cursory read. It isn't so depressing when you do it quickly.

Later. Listening to France 24 and their Israel election coverage. Not sure why as I have little or no idea what the difference is between the Likud and Blue and White parties as both are right wing with similar policies. Watching it, taking time for an hour's nap, more than enough to take you through an afternoon.

Evening. Added this tomorrow morning as has seemingly become the habit. Checked out this and that on television, but bailed to watch three episodes of a new series on the tablet. How many of these have I started with the first or first two episodes and then given up, resulting in a long line of series sitting in limbo, never to be finished? I suspect (hope) I'm not alone in this.
