Received an alert today.
Outage. No internet, no TV, no wifi, no Alexa.
I am rejoicing!
Freedom to be detached from devices
Reminds me of the blackout so many years ago.
No subway service.
I rushed to my car to pick up friends from work.
Chirping Chicken owner gave me all his cooked food for free
I brought it to my UWS friends.
We were like adolescents.
At a pajama party.
Now, decades later, I turn to practice the piano
A different joy.
A wondrous quiet solitude.
