UP EARLY, LIKE 5:00. I LIKE THAT. I don’t sleep uninterrupted. Sometimes I’m up for a couple hours in the middle of the night. I read. Listen to a podcast or two on my phone which I take to bed with me for that reason. A week ago I bought melatonin. Friends have said they’ve had success with it. I used it two nights and I did sleep a bit better, but the sluggish feeling I felt the next morning from it made me put it in the back of the kitchen cupboard with stuff I should just throw out.

I’M MOSTLY AVOIDING NEWS compared to the obsession I‘ve had about it for the last four years. I can’t let it continue to be an obsession. It shouldn’t be entertainment. I’ll wear my mask and do things cautiously that guys our age are now doing. I see people without masks. Nice day here. I go out. My hour walk is a highlight for me. Today I went to 7 Eleven with my three lottery tickets to see if I won. One went tilt when I put it under the scanner. Huh? I kept scanning it. Tilt again. I eventually realized I was a day early. I thought it was Thursday.
