The Winter Of Our Discontent

The phrase popped into my head as I was pondering the upcoming winter with Covid. Weather isn't the same everywhere in the country, but the season will shrink the opportunities for outside activities, which largely means all recreational out of home activities.

And then I started thinking about the Steinbeck novel, from which I stole quotes for the post titles today. I haven't read it in..let's say 25 years... but I guess it stuck in my brain the way some books do. Various themes, but one is coping with living in a world where you gotta be a scammer to get ahead, or even just to tread water, despite what you were taught, and realizing the next generation learned that lesson early.
