“demon pox. there’s always demon pox.”

after a busy day
spent teaching, singing, walking, grocery shopping with a mask, writing new plans, meeting, and conferencing
i finally sat down
one last time
all of it behind me
settling in for an evening at home
picturing myself like the image above
came into play
where it was revealed
that i was actually
more like disheveled barbie
but she probably has more fun anyway.
when you have a vision of where you need to go,
it sounds uptopian. but when you get to the tipping point,
your understanding switches.”

happy national cocktail day
in this era of zoom happy hours, the quarantini, and more than lots of stay home time
what have you been mixing up in your quarantine cave?
do you find yourself using
whatever you can scrounge up in your kitchen?
is your go-to
a cornhattan, pickled okra and tonic, dandelion/parsley wine, a salsa sour?
what have you managed to blend, shake, mix, mash, stir, or sling together
to create your new signature drink?
all cocktails and mocktails welcome here.
“life is a crazy mixture of intoxicating cocktails.”
