A Word From The Bunker
I keep looking for an end or a bit of light with regards to the pandemic. It's hard when we're 10 months into it and still looking at probably another 6-8 before we see widespread vaccinations. Unfortunately our numbers are as high as they've ever been and hospitals are starting to feel the pinch on a much broader scale. We're not too bad locally, but am hearing reports of places that are. In the meantime, I continue to stay home as much as possible and minimize contact with people.
To keep a sense of normalcy, I continue to try and get some writing done. In the last week I've submitted to 3 poetry magazines and a nonfiction story about introversion to Introvert, Dear, a website on the cause. I'll tell you more about it if you text me. LOL. Little introvert joke there.
The combination of writing and my wife are keeping me sane through all of this. I'm still reporting into work twice a week with three days working from home. When I get down about any of it I try and remember that I have a good job, a house and my health. But we humans are a greedy lot, and I want everything we used to have and all the freedoms that come with it. I guess it's just a waiting game for now.
As someone said, the circle of people we know who have had covid is getting tighter. It used to be friends of friends, now it's friends. That's what happens.
So, not too much else to say. Still taking my daily walks (2), hanging out at home, watching a little football and trying to stay positive (in attitude, not testing).
I hope you are doing well and staying safe as well.
