Day Thirteen, Month Three
Well, today is the last day of the five day control. My block is on the afternoon shift but I take the dog out for his morning needs all the same.
Eastern Plaza is now open, some people exercise, I see a woman doing tai chi… she’s quite skilled; heading towards the Western Plaza I see another woman doing tai chi, or Chi Gong, on the building doorstep… she startled by my presence; at the Southgate there are a couple people walking their dogs;
The two volunteer trucks wait for use; the old guard is at the gate, this seems to be his regular post, he’s sitting quietly; I feel completely exhausted, even though it is wet outside, I listen to digital rain on the computer, I am, “lying flat…” and soon fall asleep.
