Escapism


The man wasn't well yesterday, and he stayed home from work. We binge-watched Westworld, a very dystopian vision of humanity, and yet, it felt like pure escapism whenever we took a break to check on what was happening in the real world. He's back at the museum today, hosting scientific visitors to his department, while I am sitting here trying to work. I find I am missing certain details and so will have to interview my subject again. Tonight, I'll be going to a wine and paint class with my daughter, redeeming her birthday present to me. It will be lovely to spend time with my girl, who I haven't set eyes on in a week. It's raining out, which is a relief. Nothing much to say today. I'm here.

  1. I love those painting classes. I've been minus the wine. They take you away. And you beautiful daughter will be there and love you up. I hope your Mr is really well and not just going to work cause he has to. I'm with you today.๐Ÿ’•

    1. Joanne, I've been wanting to go to one of these classes for a while, hence the birthday gift. I can't think of a better painting class companion than my girl. Other than looking forward to the class, I feel singularly blah today. I hope you're not with me on that. Sending love.

  2. I'm glad you're here too! We haven't watched Westworld yet. Wine and paint sounds fun!

    1. Steve, it's definitely diverting, and for a Zen Buddhist like yourself, thought provoking.
