Defying the Stalker

Today I defied COVID to challenge me as I walked over to the Avdi’s with some homemade Jewish penicillin (matzah ball soup).  We followed all the precautionary protocols.  I served Avdi some soup in the sukkah, then cut some more branches for the roof and sides, while he took a nap on the trampoline.  I also cut flowers for the customary Shabbat bouquets for their house, and even got one for myself for a change.  Then I walked back home.

It was the best of both worlds: I got to get out of my apartment and see Avdi and co. and help them out a little, and I returned to my quarantine feeling less isolated.  Maybe I’m tempting fate, but it was for a therapeutic cause.
