Kath didn’t know enough about golf to tell if he was any good. Didn’t seem to bother him, that he might never play a real round of golf ever again. He just seemed to enjoy hitting balls to nowhere.

Kath sat on the edge of the barricade and watched for a little while.

“Morning,” Dennis said finally.

“What happens when you run out?”

He shrugged. “Maybe I’ll start hitting rocks. But, maybe I won’t run out. Maybe I’ll get back to Palm Springs, when everything gets back to normal.”

This is normal, she thought. She was thinking that more and more, but never said it out loud.

i don’t usually read tor shorts that are connected to books or series i haven’t read, but there wasn’t a new one posted this week and this was the most appealing option in the batch of unreads. it’s a prequel, so i daresay i haven’t spoiled anything for myself if i ever choose to read the two-book bannerless saga (which actually sounds pretty good), and although there isn’t much *to* the story, it does seem to be something fans of that series would appreciate—a look at the transition from one reality to the new normal; its medical realities, loss of opportunities, and dawning acceptance that the world ain’t going back to what it was, there will always be new challenges to face, but as long as people have have community and loved ones, it’s possible to get through it. but maybe slow yer breeding, sheesh.

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
