Aren’t we all thinking about this Covid anniversary? A year into the pandemic?
Time’s such a tricky thing. I’ve lived through moments that seemed like an eternity — such as the terrible experience when my baby had an allergic reaction and ceased breathing. Those were endless moments before she gasped again, her tiny chest taking in air. Conversely, my second pregnancy appeared to stretch out far beyond the standard nine months….
One year into the pandemic realm, I’m at the point where I’ve accepted: Live here now.
In a conversation with someone today via Zoom, I’m asked what I’m doing in September.
September, on one hand, is not so far off. On the other hand, I’m hoping there’s a lot of living between here and there. (Plus, I can hardly envision what I’m doing next month.)
This makes me think of my younger, more hippie days, reading Ram Dass.
We’re all just walking each other home.
