By now, you know that the world has changed. And we wait and wonder.
Yet, it is Spring and the sky never looked more clear and my backyard is blooming. The streets of Jersey City will return to pre-20th century quiet after 8 p.m. curfew. Homeschooling is already becoming normal.
The rare and old books sit like the steadfast soldiers. They have seen it all. They have not lost any value and they have not ceased to be fascinating. I think I’ll actually begin to read one tonight, knowing that someday it will belong to someone else.
I’m happy to have them as company in these strange days. And we have our records and record player. They bring a sense of history and normality to our family.
Because, you know…you have to party like it’s 1919.
Stay Beautiful. Stay strong.
