My old Cornell ID was not swiping properly at the fitness center so I went to the Registrar's office and got a new one, with a new photo, on June 4, 2019. And yes, I'm increasingly using those drugstore reading glasses.
The raised bed that I made in June 2014 with recycled scaffolding planks is replaced with a new cedar structure at the end of the growing season, Oct. 2019.
I'm working from home as of March 13, 2020—the COVID-19 virus has changed everything. More than two months later, still working from home, I write this love song for a pandemic.
My mother dies on April 8, 2022, exactly one month shy of her 97th birthday. Born and raised in Brooklyn, except when her mother moved the family (sans father) to Tucson and Miami, she taught 4th grade for many years in New Rochelle, was a talented artist, and played the harmonica.
I retire from Cornell, moving into emeritus status effective July 1, 2022, and transfer many of my office books to an upstairs bedroom at home where I've been working since the pandemic (I had built the bookshelves originally for my mother's house and retrieved them when she moved into assisted living).
