crowded isolation

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Edward Hopper is trending on twitter now, and a series taps through tweets captures what other great artists express, which is similar sentiment that strikes me painting after painting created years apart. Seems odd to me that Chicago Art Institute bought Nighthawks directly from the artist, and this is striking, because the Met in NYC almost never is the first to own its masterpieces. In 2000 I moved to work in Philadelphia, and I lived in New Jersey near the Walt Whitman bridge. It was in the final phase of my first marriage, so I slept in a variety of places including company housing and friend’s couches. This period was an emotional renaissance for me. The city was both lonely and inspiring, and Hopper’s art reminds me of my few years in Philadelphia when a significant part of my time was spent surrounded by art ranging from Western masterpieces to university student collections. Cities are crowded; cities are lonely — ironically. Last night in NYC I had several ironic Hopper-like moments. My delivery count was typical of a busy night yet it felt slow. My brief periods of time between deliveries seems short when the city is busy, but seemed long as NYC sat nearly still. The stillness of the city made fifteen minutes feel like fifty. Hopper’s paintings feature people in cities seemingly isolated. I tried to arrange outside custody change of my deliveries last night, but I was denied. A Grubhub rep said it was not possible, but Grubhub notices says outside change of custody is available by customer request. ¿Customers? yes ¿Delivery pros? no. By my count I completed hours of deliveries with zero face-touch errors, and only a few door-handle-touch errors. Today is time for Hana’s eye doc appointment, and I’ll begin a series of four NYC delivery days mañana. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact

doorknobs

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Hana and I rent our second bedroom to two women, and if one of the four of us gets ill, then . . . then . . . then . . . stay calm don’t panick. Today with my food deliveries I’ll try to transfer all my food outside, with arrangements via text and phone. Grubhub has sent emails that it’s allowed . . . not sure how it will go. I shaved my head, so my handwash when I return home includes dunking my head in warm water. I feel it’s a better way to clean all entry points on my head. Hana held doors for me to leave without touching doorknobs, then she returned inside and washed her hands. With help from my metal hook I plan to touch no door handles. My wet wipes are pure with no sanitizer, which allows me to wipe my eyes first then blow my nose. The clean face tactic helps me keep my hands off my face. If I can stay healthy with a healthy home I’ll feel accomplished. I’m getting enough rest, my body temp is normal, and I feel healthy today. I am moving more deliberately and more thoughtfully than usual. Entering a bodega to use the ATM today required turning a doorknob, which sent me to an alternative ATM. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact

Coronavirs y finger condoms

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Nicole Arbour got fifteen minutes of fame with “dear fat people” viral on youtube in 2019, and she began it or another vid with her face in the lense like she was looking in a mirror feeling something stiff in her hair, “is it ¿Seaman? or ¿Hairspray?”. Seaman has a way of going everywhere, but only has a chance of creating pregnancy if injected into a fertile woman’s vagina. This is a good way to think about Coronavirus. Viable Coronavirus in Nicole’s hair will not make her ill, but it’s close and cause for concern but but but it’s invasion of her lungs via nose and nasal cavity that risks making Nicole ill. I’m inspired to write this, because I see people wearing gloves, which keeps the Coronavirus off the skin of their hands, but then their gloved hand touches their nose. It’s best to think of this like condoms on fingers to prevent pregnancy. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact

mucho Mexican chili arbol

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« The target audience of this text is Indians I know through social media and business, and I’ll use a facebook group I created for occasions like this. Other readers are not likely to easily access the pic, so you may want to know it’s my Roman bean (aka large Pinto beans) onion, garlic, Mexican chili arbol peppers, curcuma (aka turmeric) and a quarter pound Latino-style bacon (“Latino style” is my phrase meaning skin-on thick-cut bacon). The chili peppers rise to the top during pressure cooking making it an awesome looking dish for people with a taste for chili heat. My attraction to all things Indian began in 2000 with my move to Philadelphia, and my love of India (no I have not visited any part of the great subcontinent) continued, and now my palate is conditioned for a meal like this to start my daily routine. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact

lesson alla South Korea

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« If there was one image I could make memorable it’s NYC 32nd Street between Fifth Avenue and Broadway, which a lot of people know is K Town. The young woman was probably South Korean or of Korean descent, and she touched her face with a finger by reaching under her respiratory mask. South Korea is the first country credited for decelerating its spread of Coronavirus, and I see one of the methods used in K Town, which is the hand cleaning stations and trash bin inside the doors of most of the Korean restaurants in K Town. Two things: ONE: woman with finger under her mask TWO: K Town with hand cleaning equipment and trash bins. Public health officials are saying handwashing and no face touching are the two most important things we can do, and masks should only be used when disposed of frequently. Also masks are only needed around known infected people in close quarters (aka those who care for infected people). South Korea has known effective measures, and the handwashing and no face touching are part of their traction against the virus. ¿Masks? only limited situations and used properly. »» about me 302-990-2346 contact
