Everyone has lost track of the days, right? I didn’t self-isolate until a bit later due to my work schedule but I am doing it now and the days blend into one another. It would be great if we had some sun to break it up. It’s been cloudy and dreary. My dog lies in wait for a random sun beam to stream in from the window.
How is everyone doing? Some of my friends are reporting flu-like symptoms. Others are losing their minds, or starting to, over their young children being cooped up at home. Husbands and wives everywhere are getting on each other’s nerves.
As rough as it is, and for as long as we have to do this, we will survive. It just seems like such a long time and with no definitive end in sight. What I love though is how the community is coming together to make some things accessible to all, like online dance classes, or Broadway shows streamed for free. My daughter took a class with Debbie Allen the other day. Remember her from the TV show Fame? That is how we are getting through this.
Ideally, this would be a great time to read. I am doing better in this area now. When this all started I was so distracted. Too distracted to read but now, I am feeling a little more at ease and starting to look forward to reading again. Of course, the right book helps and the one I am reading now, The Women in the Dark is just the book I needed to get back into it. The story immediately grabbed me.
This has been a year but I offer this, someday this will be in the past.
