    Just cracked open this book. It's been on my list for a while. I was inspired to finally start in on this after reading an essay about Bi-polar disorder written by the author.

    How does everyone have this much free time?

    Things have never been busier with work

    Not everyone works, or is able to work because of shut downs. I usually split my time between HK & France, but it's going to be months before I can get back there.

    Back to books! I'm listening to Factfulness by Hans Rusling on Audible while I try out some English Paper Piecing quilting. Thought it might cheer me up to here how things aren't as bad as we think. It's not working!

    Be seriously grateful for that, many people are without work or income.

    My son has been improving with the singing module and you can even learn ukulele.

    Grab a decent uke from here:

    That is really a very good price...

    Ukulele makes you happy.
    I just ordered one of these. It's scheduled to be delivered mid-week.

    Just hopped on the exercise bike and pedaled away for an hour while starting in on Shogun. Clavell's epic historical fictions that run 1000+ pages are perfect for a quarantine.
