New Point of View: Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a CDC research scientist flown in from the US to meet with her counterparts in London. She wonders if she’ll be able to return to the U.S., seeing how chaotic things are becoming in Europe.

As she’s typing up her initial report to her superiors at the CDC, it hits her.

I’m trying to convey how unbelievably bad this is going to get and as I’m typing, I catch my breath.

My dad. My dad is in Jackson. It’s not close to Europe, sure, but this virus is going to make its way to the US soon if it hasn’t already. There have already been a few reports of the occasional case and surely it’ll mushroom in the next few days.

Feels like Christina Sweeney-Baird correctly predicted EVERYTHING about the way this would go.

September Colors and Letters Challenge: Gray Orange

Self does not know whether she’s interpreting the challenge correctly: Find a picture that contains both GRAY and ORANGE.

She didn’t think she could find any pictures that fit, but — will wonders never cease? She found two pictures from a visit to the de Young Museum, a few weeks ago: Ruth Asawa art!

Without further ado:

Ruth Asawa: Permanent Installation, Education Tower, de Young Museum, San Francisco

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.

The Virus, London

Catherine’s husband and son are still alive, as of p. 46.

  • I stopped taking Theodore to nursery weeks ago. The idea of it made me shiver; putting him in a big room with thirty other children and adults who could have been anywhere, touched anything, be carrying it but not know. Anyone could have it.The End of Men, p. 46

The pandemic survival rate is 3.4%. Catherine and her husband “spend as much time as possible together . . . We sleep entwined like otters.”
