Ray, i feel far away from you.
Ray, i do not know how you are doing.
Ray, it feels like nothing can buffer the physical distance between you and me. life is not easy here and must not be there either, and maybe it also seems to you that it is shrinking to the necessities of the local to an absurd point where even the local is not possible anymore.
Ray, i am going to meditate soon and salute the 4 directions.
Ray, i am ok, not dying of covid, so i am grateful for that.
