Covid 19: The Hunt for TP, Hand Sanitizer, and Humanity

Today marks week 5 of Californians Safer at Home / Simi-quarantine. I have managed to scour the lands for toilet paper & most necessities, but most of the grocery stores are still running low on most items. When I have ventured outside, people are on edge. Full of tension and anxiety, and it comes out in how they are driving (like jerks) and in how they treat people the encounter (like jerks). I suppose I deserve it.

Anyways, thanks for visiting mysite! I’m glad to be able to share my life with you, even if it is only 1 way.

I hope you are all doing well!

Love, prayers and peace be with you!

Fortress of Solitude

Wikipedia discribes the Fortress of Solitude as:

A place of solace and occasional headquarters for Superman, the fortress is typically depicted as being in frozen tundra, away from civilization.

Its been over a month now of Shelter in Place/Safer at Home, here in California. Over the last few weeks, quite a bit has happened!
Millions have lost their jobs, thousands of shows and events have been canceled including SXSW. Thousands have died including some close family members, and life still moves on. Like a never-ceasing metronome, time keeps ticking on.

That got me to thinking, is the best part of my life behind me?

I have been working since I was 13, but I didn’t get a “real job” until I was about 23.
During that time, I have traveled extensively, worked with amazing people, and created some amazing projects & events. My life now is far more subdued, and I feel like I’m missing something. I don’t know if its the beginning of midlife crisis or just a longing to do something bigger.

I look back fondly upon the things I have accomplished and wonder will I reach those amazing heights again?

At times I look up the accomplishments of others, where they are, what they are doing, where they are heading. It is amazing to see the growth of my friends and loved ones. It gives me hope!

Anyways, I hope you are all doing well. I hope you have a Fortress of Solitude that you can retreat to and find peace and safety.

Good luck, God bless & peace be with you.

M.H.

Astronomy News

Tonight’s supermoon — named after a pink wildflowerPhlox subulata — will be the closest full moon of 2020. The moon reaches perigee, or the closest point to Earth in its elliptical orbit, at 2:08 p.m. EDT (1808 GMT). At that time, the moon will be 221,905 miles (357,122 kilometers) away from Earth, compared to its average distance of 240,000 miles (384,400 km). The moon will become officially full about 8.5 hours after reaching perigee, at 10:35 p.m. EDT (0235 GMT on April 8).

Supermoons, or full moons that coincide with the moon’s perigee, appear about 7% larger and 15% brighter than the average full moon. However, the difference may not be noticeable to the casual observer. To get a closer view of tonight’s Super Pink Moon — and to learn about the science and history of this special moon-gazing event, two online observatories are offering free webcasts today.
