  1. Tell Me How You're Doin'

    Monday, March 30, 2020

    Hi people.  I’m so far, so good.  I hope you are too.  Hope you'll let me know.

    In the last couple of weeks, three people in my life decided to send me 
    gifts.  I think my jaw is still hanging.  A friend who lives in the next building from me gave me an apple, a package of raspberries, herbal tea, and twenty dollars.  Most importantly, she shared precious memories of when she used to babysit my son sometimes.  I had a smile the whole time she spoke.

    A poetry pal sent me fifty dollars and asked not to be identified because 
    he didn’t want to ruin his “bad” reputation.  Lol

    My longtime friend Judy sent me a card with a hundred dollars scotch-
    taped inside the card.  Oh my God.

    All of that really helped.  I was able to pay people to whom I owed money.  
    I was also able to buy necessities.

    I need to get used to being treated well.  At this time, it makes me cry – 
    not with sadness, rather just because I’m so moved.

    A former student messaged me on Facebook.  She asked how I’m doing.  
    That was so caring.  Well so far I’m okay.  I am grateful.  She and her immediate family are okay too, but she has relatives stricken with the virus.  This is so sad.  I have to remember that most people survive.

    Aside from all that, when I didn’t know when I’d get my daily inhaler 
    because it was on back-order, two people offered to give me their refills.  I am very moved by the kindness.  Neither of them used the inhaler I do, 
    but their offers felt amazing.  People can be so great while others can suck so badly.

    I do usually go out once a day.  I use the opportunity to take out garbage, 
    go to the store, and try to see my feline friend Mustache who lives in a store but is sometimes outside looking for trouble.  She can be rough stuff, but she and I have a loving relationship.  I think the need is mutual.  In the store, she isn’t treated like a furry child.  So I must feel so different to her.  As a child, I was given many challenges as well, so her pure love feels wonderful.  She is mostly black and some white.  Her snout is white with what looks like a black mustache above her top lip.  Hence, her name.  She’s my girl.

    I actually came up with a few bits of comedy during this homebound time.  
    And the bits were inspired by the horror we are living in.  But it’s not about the illness or the victims of it.  It stems from things I hear on TV, the lesser known symptoms, the lifestyle changes, etc.

    As a comic, I believe I’m supposed to stay current.  Most of my stuff is 
    kind of timeless.  But I try to write funny shit about current events.  I admire those who do it well.  I find it challenging.  But I generally enjoy challenges.

    Feel welcome to let me know you are okay or not okay.  I'd like to know.  

    Thanks for reading.

    love to CGG-M  💕

      I think this poem fits perfectly with what you are seeing:
      Small Kindnesses
      By Danusha Laméris

      I’ve been thinking about the way, when you walk
      down a crowded aisle, people pull in their legs
      to let you by. Or how strangers still say “bless you”
      when someone sneezes, a leftover
      from the Bubonic plague. “Don’t die,” we are saying.
      And sometimes, when you spill lemons
      from your grocery bag, someone else will help you
      pick them up. Mostly, we don’t want to harm each other.
      We want to be handed our cup of coffee hot,
      and to say thank you to the person handing it. To smile
      at them and for them to smile back. For the waitress
      to call us honey when she sets down the bowl of clam chowder,
      and for the driver in the red pick-up truck to let us pass.
      We have so little of each other, now. So far
      from tribe and fire. Only these brief moments of exchange.
      What if they are the true dwelling of the holy, these
      fleeting temples we make together when we say, “Here,
      have my seat,” “Go ahead — you first,” “I like your hat.”

    2. Thanks Joe. I enjoyed the poem. Good to hear from you.
