Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the D.C. metro region has been in a state of partial lockdown. To alleviate fear and stress, my writer's group has put together a daily “morning pages” get-together on Zoom in order to touch base before starting the day. Here's some of my brief thoughts.
A blue birdy!
I think I had my first COVID-19 related dream last night, I forgot what it was. Also looks like my age-old fear, that of going hungry, might actually become a reality, with people walking off the fields and the factories. I'm not exactly sure how to guarantee a fresh supply of veggies though. If push comes to shove, it might be a good idea to go home, because home has a backyard and a basement with some ability to grow food.
Good things to talk about, let's see. It's pretty sunny this morning! Might go out for a longer walk. Also video chatted with a friend for a few hours yesterday and got to reconnect there, and I think we're gonna try and do a study buddy thing where we can work on our own stuff and remain accountable. I think that'll be good for both of us.
I think he asked when the last time I saw somebody in person was, and I'd say beginning of March. That's pretty crazy to think about. This cough won't go away and I got it then and was self-quarantining just in case, and it still won't go away. So no people and no in-person contact.
Lots of work to be done this week, so hopefully today is a new day and I can power through the pile!
