I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Life in the time of coronavirus

Greetings from the epicenter, the eerily empty city of New York.

I've always loved the reflections on the Javits Convention Center, and the geometries of all those grids and catwalks. Now it's being converted into a hospital; they're setting up 2000 beds to act as an overflow facility for patients who don't require ICU care.

I found a book of Sudoku puzzles when I was cleaning out a closet, and I've been doing puzzles before I fall asleep at night. I've always found Sudoku calming, and the routine of writing rows of numbers on paper pages instead of playing an electronic version keeps me from obsessively checking the news. Which is not going to give any of us sweet dreams these days.
