Yesterday the CDC changed their guidance for vaccinated individuals: masks no longer required! I wrote about it here: Re-Emergence II
I also updated Scott’s Kitchen with a recipe we’ve used frequently during the pandemic: Easy New York Steak on the Stove

For the first time in over a year I was able to re-enter on of our local libraries. Re-emergence!

Just noticed that one year ago today – March 14, 2020 – was the last time we had dinner at a local restaurant. A few days later our Covid-19 lockdown began and the world changed dramatically.

Over the last three weeks I joined an online photography course offered by Santa Fe Workshops – The Language of Black and White taught by Cira Crowell. I had taken the in-person version of this course the first time Cira taught in back in 2019 and wanted a refresher from this great teacher. I wrote about some of my learnings (re-learnings?) in this blog post I shared on Friday. Cira’s planning to teach the in-person version of this course in July assuming Covid-19 moderates appropriately by then.

Just finished reading Radigan by Louis L’Amour – the first book by this famous western writer that I’ve read. It was highly recommended by writer Gil Adamson here where she writes “a great, great short read about a man who owns a ranch, and these very, very vicious people come in, and they’ve decided they want his land. But he’s not going to give it to them—he’s far cleverer than they could ever imagine.” A great read!

Reading the Chronology in the new Library of America volume Hemingway brought back to my mind the walk up he and his wife at the time moved into in Paris in 1922. I was first introduced to it on my first photo walk in Paris with Valerie Jardin and have since walked past it many times as it’s near where I usually stay in Paris. Fond memories!
I’m looking forward to the upcoming PBS special on Hemingway produced by Ken Burns airing in early April.

What am I doing now? I recently added a /now page to my site: sjl.us/now
After reading Craig Mod’s tweet about Microsoft Edge, I decided to download and try Edge on one of my Macs. He’s right – it’s impressive. Years ago I guess I’d written off any browser effort by Microsoft – but they’re really up to something good here.
How about you? What are you doing now? Please drop me a note and share!
