First Gathering To Normal

by dimensionaltales

I have 29 short stories to complete before the end of August but my colleagues made it very clear that I need a break. So, we decided to celebrate the fact that most of the businesses are open again. Mainly the bars because that’s what we cared about.

I met some more of my colleagues for a hotpot. It was my first one and they took it easy on me by telling me to start with what I know. But then…they pushed me to try other things. I didn’t know what was which but I found myself enjoying everything single food that I put in my mouth. I wanted to take a picture of it but I’m trying to be more at the moment than the typical foreigner. No need to be a cliche.

However, I did notice something I didn’t think I would encounter here: fear and prejudice. At first, I was looked at with intrigue and amazement. Now, I’m being looked at as if I’m the walking plague. Think Worldkiller from Season 3 of Supergirl. More specifically, Pestilence. It’s a powerfully painful wound but I pray that it passes. China is too beautiful to be subjected to such evil.

In the meantime, I was given my birthday wishes from my family and friends back in the States. My grandma was first and made sure that I got her messages in Google Voice and WhatsApp. Then, my brother called me while my mom grabbed me on Instagram. Everybody else did the Facebook thing and I felt blessed thought and thought. I’m truly blessed to be loved.

Now, please, don’t forget to follow me on my social media platforms (Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads) which are on the right side of my web page. Also, I do love hearing suggestions of what books to read outside of my norm (Science fiction and fantasy) as I am a part of the Goodreads’ reading challenge for 2020. My goal is to read 100 books this year and I’m already at 41. Probably end up reading 120 before the year is out.

Also, buy Not Afraid of Dick: A Sitdown with Dante Drackis, which is out on Amazon and Kindle.
