Rani’s photo came with a haiku:

Through the looking glass
Into the upside-down world
Can’t get to normal
On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, I got together with my neighbor across the street for Social Distance Hours. We brought some drinks and Bluetooth speaker; she sat at the top of her stairs and me at the bottom and just caught up for some desperately needed human interaction. Photos by Brian D. Jones in Bernal.


A house on 23rd and Bryant streets. Just a simple reminder that there are still folks working out here and we should appreciate them. Photo by Lisa Raskin.
