Recovery and alligators.

Recovery and alligators

My positive Covid-19 test result was followed by phone calls from the labs, doctors, and even the Department of Health. I was asked to self isolate for ten days.

I can be a maniac about things, since I had nine cases of water (40 bottles each case) in my home and plenty of food, I went above and beyond the CDC recommentations and self isolated for 21 days.

Today, is the first day I have felt zero body ache, yes, the body ache and faitgue have lingered. I finally went out to see the world.

That is when I spotted my first Florida alligator (see video).

Hope you are all well.

I am traveling to the Dominican Republic week week (for a five week beach vacation). Not sure when I will be posting regularly again, perhaps I will start on Monday. We will see.

Take good care. Be safe.

And watch out for the gators.

Feeling better, but……

Feeling better, but

My fever finally came down to 98.6. The chills are gone.

The body ache and cough persist.

My test results just came back positive for COVID-19.

Beach Boy is staying isolated, drinking plenty of fluids, and taking good care of himself. Thankfully, I just stocked the fridge last week.

So my friends Ben & Jerry will accompany me.

Showing all the symptoms of Covid

Showing all the symptoms of Covid

Sorry, for the unexpected absence from blogworld.

Since Friday night I have been showing all the symptoms of Covid (fever, muscular pain, burning eyes, some shortness of breath, and severe chills). And they have become progessively worse.

Already canceled my two MD appointments for this week. Waiting to hear back from my doctors.

Not sure when I will return to blogging,

Stay safe. Be well.

Recito mi primer poema en Español; "los mares de tu adios."

rain on my windshield

This poem debuted a month ago on Youtube.

rain on my windshield

a road slick with memories
billboards pass silently
reminding me of the unspoken words
that have me seeing red
‘til they became traffic signals
in the intersection of a romance
on the corner of what could have been
and what was never meant to be
oh my
insistent wipers keep saying no
as the rain on my windshield
evaporate, like drops of your love

I will always treasure your beautiful support. Thank you.

love hung in her closet

.

Love hung in her closet
like a lonely dress
no longer in style
If I told her
that dress was made for her
would she wear it
one more time
She looks beautiful in love
She wears it well
One day I may tell her
Perhaps, I never will
If I don’t
it will always hurt
to know
Love hung in her closet
it was never worn
for me

Youtube forced me to remove the music I downloaded from a royalty free website.

Thus, The Lonely Author is proud to announce, premiering today his new hit single, (I am certain it will be a hit because once you hear it, you will want to hit me). The Lonely Author Blues, is composed, written by, and performed by Moi.

All music appearing on this video cannot be copied, reproduced, redistributed, or published without direct written permission from The Lonely Author or it will lead to him sticking his tongue out at you.

Special Note: Blame Timothy Price of Off Center & Not Even fame. He suggested I compose and perform my own song.

Another Special Note: I use the term composing lightly, I sound like I was decomposing.
