I had breakfast with a friend yesterday. I went grocery shopping. I did a load of laundry and drafted a small poem. I read Mansfield Park. I took a long walk to the library and borrowed Svetlana Alexievich's Secondhand Time: The Last of the Soviets and Margaret Drabble's The Sea Lady. I made a pot of minestrone.
Today I will return to editing. I will have lunch with a friend. I will try to solve a grammatical problem in the poem I drafted yesterday. I will look at my library books. I will write letters to my representatives. I will make tofu and bok choy for dinner. I will worry about the Department of Justice.
Meanwhile, day is peering over the edge of the sea again. And the lights glitter on the far shore.
