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

Life in the time of coronavirus

The pétanque court in Bryant Park is open; I don't think I'd ever realized that the court was even there, but watching a game, any game, played live has to count as a luxury these days.

Pétanque lends itself well to social distancing. (Yes, I read the rules--you think I had something better to do?) The players take turns standing at the end of the court to throw, and they only handle their own balls. And apparently a mask doesn't get in the way.
