It's a rainy, grey day. I'm here at the store by myself. That is nothing new, but the rain makes me predict that the isolation will continue. On a sunny day, there is always the anticipation that someone might walk in with a fresh insight or response or question. Being isolated is OK. I have everything I need and it is enough. What would I be doing at home? Nothing. What do retired people do with their lives? They travel, explore, engage with their grandchildren, plan for spring tulips, and vegetables. They read a book to prepare for book club.
