Something About the Sun

Back in the carefree days of driving
across the country from State to State,
when "corona" just meant something about the sun!

Thanks to my friends
Jay Beets
for this photo of Me & My Panama Bag ~ May 2017
Duo Dickinson
for his essay: "Coronal" ~ March 2020
"The lacerating tunes of our discord are great with us. Right now. . . .

"The sun is not just the sun, it is also the corona, beyond it. It is what it makes that it does not feed upon. No virus, however spherical and full of dark energy, makes that corona, But the corona of fear, of anger and angst is as real, until it goes away, because the virus simply has no hosts. It only has fear."

To calm the fear, it's cool these days to have
a Quarantine Playlist ~ here's mine:

Jay picked this one:
Scarborough Fair

Kinda feels like it:
