taking stock: quarantine, week 9.

week 9 was an interesting one. work wise we made some good progress in summer preparations, and personally i spent some time doing things i wanted or needed to do for myself. it was neither a great week nor a terrible one; it just was.

so good, and so timely. memphis, tennessee. may 2020.
