shelter in place

Since my last post we’ve bounced back to alert level 5 with COVID-19. I’m not sure why, but periodically I envision myself many years from now reading books on 2020-21 and scratching my head thinking, ‘did that really happen? I lived through this?’

I’m working from home now, which is w e i r d. I’m finding it hard trying to keep work/home separate, so much so that I don’t like going into the second bedroom anymore where my temporary office is set up alongside Jeff’s gaming empire. Which is a shame because that’s where all my favourite things are; my books, my cameras, my art supplies.

Anyways. I’ll adjust. This is going to be ‘life with COVID’ after all, I don’t think this is going anywhere anytime soon.

Here’s some things I’ve been up to.

I hope you’re all keeping safe & well.

To the moon and back

When I feel alone, I look at the moon. I know that thousands of people the world over are looking at the same moon. They might not have the same feelings that I do, but they are feeling and hurting and the glow of the moon settles their soul.. if only for a moment. In that moment, we’re one person.

Whenever I feel alone, I look at the moon. I imagine myself years from now, looking at the moon and thinking, how far have I come? Will this matter five years from now? Maybe. Maybe not.

Whenever I feel alone, I look at the moon. It brings enough empathy that I can rest if only for a moment. In that moment, we’re still one person.

Whenever I feel alone, I look for the moon. Sometimes it’s not there, it’s hidden behind the clouds and I need to find myself for myself. I’ll always keep searching, for in that moment, I’m a whole person.

To the moon and back,

M.
