It only took a pandemic (and watching Greta Gerwig’s Little Women) to get me to start writing again. On of the key reasons I began sharing my blogging in the mid-aughts was that I had a lot of free time to explore the Internet. Having been quarantined for the past 4 days I can safely say that feeling is coming back. I have a lot of time to stop, think, and be curious.
So far, Kyle and the dogs and I are doing pretty well in isolation. Kyle has a worrisome brain, paired with his love language of “acts of service” mean that we were stockpiled and ready weeks ago. His diligence and thoughtfulness during this time has been a blessing. Growing up an only child feels like a boon right now.
Technology has been a surprising asset. Twitter has felt more like a communal space to share things, it reminds me of a decade ago. Lots of group chats, FaceTime, Slack video conferencing, VPN, Apple Watch to make me mindful of standing. Grateful I upgraded to the super fast Internet long ago.
There’s a lot going on right now so I’m going to try and find and share some of the beauty that’s out there.
