Interesting to see how quickly a virus can wipe the military-industrial, imperial, smirk off the Republicans. Slow to the take, they're realising the US is not immune to invasion, that no amount of bullying, buyouts or bombs is enough to stop their occupier

On a day in the middle of Everything, on lockdown by myself, I received a parcel...and stared at it confused for five minutes (thinking it must be for someone else) before opening it. Feeling so blessed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and Olaf (and posties).

I'm not a writer. I have no interest in fables. Or 'empowerment'. But I appreciate what you're saying.

The realisation that, in old age, I am forgetting words, losing a vocabulary gained not only from decades of reading but daily trying to describe my lived experiences, if only to myself. It distresses me more than my poor health.
