No, very much not the religious kind. Just ash-white sky, strangely lurid defused sun rises and moons that celebrate Halloween continuously. The news is not reporting ash clouds this time — does that mean if we don’t mention it, it doesn’t exist?
My asthmatic lungs beg to differ. No walking outdoors for me for the foreseeable future.
But ashes seem appropriate in some sense: a young Army veteran is dead — at the hands of police summoned to prevent her suicide. I would say “rest in peace” – but more and more, I wonder if even the dead find peace these days?
