Elegant, vivid sentences like the one in the tweet above by @NaturalistDara remind me very much of my late friend neurologist/author @OliverSacks. Which is about the biggest compliment I could give a young writer.
@NaturalistDara, the 16-year old #autistic author of the brilliant debut book "Diary of a Young Naturalist," on life during lockdown: "These seemingly stagnant days for me are still full of movement, of life, of little dramas playing out in my garden." https://www.bigissue.com/latest/environment/dara-mcanulty-on-lockdown-these-stagnant-days-are-full-of-life/

Fascinating new interview with @BobDylan that goes deeper than most. "I think about the death of the human race. The long strange trip of the naked ape.

Who could have possibly predicted that "reopening" America too early would trigger surges in #coronavirus infections? This is a jaw-dropping surprise.
