Linda prompts us with “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “day/week/month/year.” Use one, use them all, use them any way you’d like. Enjoy!” She also makes a suggestion to “Basically, talk about your last year is what I’m saying …” Well some things are best left unsaid. Though baring my soul would be mighty therapeutic. Hmm. Decisions, Decisions!!
I have sort of done that already with my whiny needy posts throughout 2020. March 6, 2021 was the one year anniversary of the day our life changed forever courtesy of the Rona. Boy howdy do I remember those early days of fear and psychological warfare. Not knowing much about the dreaded virus caused quite the spin. Wear a mask, don’t wear a mask, wear a mask again. Sheltering in place, stays orders, each state left to its own devices. People dying prematurely in a most painful perverse way. The overrun hospital system. Flattening the curve. Isolation, job loss, dream loss, end of life as we knew it. Then vaccines offer hope but not a complete cure all. I have come to the conclusion that this whatever this is will never be over. No back to normal. But letting ya in on secret … normal is overrated anyway.
And throughout it all my family was spared. Not sure why. No rhyme or reason. Just Because. And that’s the tattoo I want to get to commemorate our experience in 2020 “Just Because”.
As always, more to come.
