The confetti rainedContinue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: Should Old Acquaintance Be Forgot?”
The title of tonight’s musing certainly sounds like something out of a Lewis Carroll novel, but in the radio silence of my last month without chronicling, I’ve discovered that, what really felt like pivoting, was, in fact, just me trying to go up the down staircase. M.C. Escher had the same idea in her lithograph,Continue reading “Love In The Time Of Corona: Up the Down Staircase”
