Dec 19: "Please limit non-essential contact." There are signs all over the city encouraging distance and reminding us to wear a mask. Wash your hands, disinfect your surroundings, take care of each other. I walk up and down Session Road, past Pizza Volante, past Laperal Building, past Porta Vaga Mall, past Tea House, and then another round and another until I lose count of my trips. The Cathedral is there but no one is praying. Used to be, there's a smattering of people at any given day. There's an air of apathy, resignation, tiredness, misplaced trust, so much waiting.
