Hey Rory.

I'm good enough, and privileged with the same job I've had for 20 years.  I'm in Bloomington just living with my cat.  The university made most of us start working from home on March 12th. And the students were asked to move home after spring break if possible.  And as of mid-night last night Indiana is under a Stay-at-home order.  The majority of town began to self-isolate as soon as the university mandated working from home.  Bloomington is pretty small, so while I would say I've seen people not taking it serious enough, it's a pretty vacant town right now and it's almost difficult to find a crowd.  We have 3 cases in our county, and 365 cases/12 deaths in the state as of yesterday.

I've been keeping busy with my job, yard work, and playing drums. Actually got a repetitive stress injury from playing drums hours a day more than usual. Trying to keep to a daily routine is helping me a bit, just so I don't get lost in time. It's supposed to be sunny and warm today, and I've been raking my yard and learning how to start composting.   

I will say, being a musician is really getting me through the isolation, and looking forward to when I can play with my band mates again.  I do miss the days when gardener/bicyclist/resourceful pixers were still a big part of town.  It was always nice to see such unity and positivity.

How is everyone doing?

My house of 6 is trying our best to not go anywhere. I work at a coffee shop, which closed last week and I have just been doing some of the roasting and bagging for doing online retail exclusively. I am currently the only employee remaining. It's a small business with a shakey payroll situation to begin with, so I am still owed about 500 dollars. Now is not a great time to be out 500 dollars. Most of my house still somehow has income, but one person works at a weed place and says everyone is ignorant there and they all share joints and hug all the time and it stresses him out.

I live in a county in Michigan with currently no reported cases, but we all are well aware that that has everything to do with a latency in testing and a lack of tests. Michigan seems to be worse and worse off by the day.

It's frightening and weird and it's only going to get weirder and worse. My plans to stay sane are to spend time on nice days picking up trash outside, and my housemate and I have been building compost bins and gardening. My partner is going to sew medical masks to donate to our local hospitals which have put out a call for it.

I hope you all are taking care of yourselves and those around you. I feel like punk kids, though maybe not the most santiary, are pretty good at shifting gears into resourceful problem solving and community care. Or maybe I'm just waxing nostalgia about it and feeling hopeful.

i don't have a job right now, trying desperately to find one. admittedly, i don't want to work with the general public, i'm a little exhausted by random harassment. so i'm trying to get even min wage 'inside jobs.' it's slow going. it sucks. but i have, for the first time, a tight group of incredibly supportive, non-fair-weather friends, i'm dating a wonderful woman and have a really wonderful sometimes-thing with another woman, trying to stay positive. it's hard, especially when you constantly are getting kinda fucked over or miss out on things by technicalities and fractions and illegal shit (like legit was working on an ADA case with a lawyer). it's hard. but what's the worst that can happen, right? i die? i've been facing that down my whole life and it doesn't scare me anymore and i'm up to spite death as long as i can.

Hey Peeknuckle!  I remember you posting.  I feel like you regularly posted funny photos of yourself making wild faces in action. Happy to hear life is good!

randomly thought about the board today, just popping in to say hi. i used to post fairly regularly from like 06-09. own a house with my husband in corvallis (between portland and eugene), slinging wood-fired pizzas on a rad vegetable farm, life is generally good! still being silly and drinking cheap beer (although a lot less these days, lol) and going to shows when i can, i'm very grateful for the DIY community in this sleepy college town. glad to see everyone is doin' well!
