I’m self-isolating as instructed, for 4 weeks. I would find it soothing right now to be at a monastery in the mountains somewhere, which leaves me wondering how I can achieve a place of greater peace and serenity at home.

Now that our idiot 'president' is threatening to end our involvement in the war in Syria (that was never authorized by congress) and now Afghanistan too, the establishment is losing its shit.
