Today I achieved my most important objective, and that is to see my old lizard while she’s still alive. I took a train early in the morning. I wore my mask and I sat by the window sewing. I’m sure the other passengers thought I was a weirdo.
I found the lizard in her bed. One of the aunts had dyed her hair a pleasant chestnut color. The lizard is shriveled up and tiny but she recognized me and was very happy to see me. I showed her a green dress I bought in Portugal and she said it was beautiful. We gave her stuffed cabbage for lunch (with sugar on top) and she said it was very good. We are a bit unsure but we calculated and realized the lizard is now past 98 years old. But obviously she’s still enjoying certain experiences and that’s important.
