12/30/22 Diary: Christmas


Title: Christmas Panel 1: Drawing of me at my worktable staring intently at my laptop. Caption, "12/24/22 - I had a nice FaceTime call with Callistus. My friends have all been really supportive with reaching out, knowing I've been a bit cut off from human interaction." -- Panel 2: Drawing of four people on the coast of the island with St Kitt in the background as the sun rises. Caption, "12/25/22 - Carla invited me to join her and two of her friends, Paul-Louis and Laurel, to hike along the SE coast to the botanical garden (hiking there was SO much more pleasant than driving there)." -- Panel 3: Drawing of me again at my worktable staring intently at my laptop. Caption, "Later I did a zoom with the family for Christmas. Nice to see all their faces." -- Panel 4: Drawing of my bare feet, wearing sandals. Caption, "On a side note, I never thought I'd become a sandal person, but here I am. If I'm chilly: sandals with socks (I know some people have the hobby of hating on sandals with socks, but we all need our hobbies)." -- Panel 5: Drawing of me walking into town with a backpack on. Caption, "12/26/22 - Since apparently there's no donut shop I decided to stop by the Sandbox Tree Bakery and then get some groceries at Duggins, but both were still closed for the long holiday weekend I guess." -- Panel 6: Drawing of me facing a bull walking loose, dragging a chain behind him. Caption, "On the way home, three cows and a bull crossed the road maybe 100 feet in front of me. The bull in last, stopped and stared at me long and hard, a heavy chain around his neck which he was dragging along the pavement. Um. Nice bull." -- Panel 7: Drawing of me in the back bathroom petting the cat Brinnie. Caption, "The cat Brinnie is skittish and lives in the back bathroom. Every time I would go in, she would jump out the window. But today she finally let me pet her (I think the tin of tuna helped)." -- Panel 8: Drawing of me walking at night with the moon only a sliver. Caption, "In the evening I walked into town for a beer at Cool Corner again. Nice just to be among people, even if I'm shy. There was a nice warm breeze, and the moon was a fingernail clipping." -- Panel 9: Drawing of me coming out of the Sandbox Tree Bakery with a bag in hand. Caption, "11/27/22 - I got a cheese pastry at Sandbox Tree Bakery (they didn't have anything sweet!), and decided to finish it for lunch. Than Duggins and home."
