It’s time my friends! Well, ok… it’s not really time …but internally and seasonally it’s time for me to slowly reemerge.
The global pandemic that we have avoided is still alive (very much so in the US since we have no testing and it will continue to move around like a pinball) and present in our world.
I have been good. Staying home. Minding my garden. Baking. Alone (sad face) but safe.
However, I am venturing out more. In my mind, I am traveling ALL over the place. In reality, I am wearing a mask everywhere I go (as mandated.) I am going to the grocery store very early and infrequently. I am washing my hands.
AND, I am doing other things too. I donated blood yesterday. Tomorrow I will work at a food collection site. Next week I have a dentist appointment.
I am cautiously emerging. Baby steps with lots of baby wipes.
I had brunch at my house with two friends last week. Sharing food. Laughing. Communing…
Yes, this coronavirus is still alive and well in my world and I am careful in every way possible. But I also am ready to go to a library, coffee shop, concert and party again. To gather in groups and share common experiences. To laugh and cry together.
I am so ready, aren’t you?
