I'm not one to write blogs so bear with me here.
It's been about two weeks under lockdown and I'm doing pretty well considering. I will admit the first couple of days or so I was a bit panicked. Questions of "what are we going to do?," how long will it last?," "will we be able to go outside ever again?" "DO I HAVE ENOUGH TP?! (jk)" were circling through my head. Once that panic passed though, I became pretty calm with the idea of staying in. I mean, why not?! I'm home, I can work on music, listen to music, read books, watch movies, sleep til whenever, basically live a life that doesn't follow anyone's schedule other than my own. Sign me up! When's the next time this is going to happen? Probably never so I may as well enjoy it as much as I can right now! I may not have any control on what's going on outside but I definitely have control of how I want conduct myself! In all seriousness, COVID-19 is a very terrible thing that's turning our world upside. At times I have thought about what if this is how life will be from now on? In all honesty, not being able to have any human contact or have the freedom to walk freely in the sun and air is a pretty scary thing. It seems like the world is pushing the reset button much in the same way people do after a traumatic experience. She has gone through so much at our expense, it's time to break it down, rebuild and clean house. When this ordeal is over I hope that this experience makes people strive to be better. Not take for granted the time we have here. To respect the world. And to not take advantage of the gifts that She has given us. She will no doubt go on with or without us. I saw a posting the other day that said many things but ended with this: "You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. And even better. When you come back, remember that you are my guests... not my masters." Stay calm, be safe. - d.
