I am convinced that if I stay at home I will have fewer excuses to explain why I am not writing more often or as well as I would like. But rather than call for take-out like BBQ, Chinese, pizza, or Mexican, I have been sending away for raw ingredients and then cooking meals: fish, beef, pork, lamb, wild mushrooms, pasta, chicken, duck, coffee, and pretzels. All I need to buy in my town, face to face, are vegetables and fruits. This means that I am at home, rather than in the car en route or returning from the store, and able to think and write more clearly than ever before. I save money on gas, reduce stress from being in traffic, and limit contact with shoppers. Shipping costs are free or minimal. I think we should subvert the entire economy and reduce acquisition of food to vast warehouses; job retraining will need to take place of those currently employed in the retail food business, or perhaps reeducation centers.
