Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the D.C. metro region has been in a state of 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.
I think now I'm in the food-binge phase of the pandemic. Like I can't think of anything else except food. Which is weird, because I have food at home, and I'm still getting takeout, and I'm just thinking about that during the entire day. I'm moving less, and have less of a reason to eat a lot of food, and yet I'm still hungry. Interesting.
I think people are talking more and more about Asian-American discrimination. I haven't experienced any myself yet, but I might soon. It'd be nice to write about it on this blog and see whether my thoughts make any sense.
So many things to do. I think I'm less time-bound, and more energy-bound. That's another thing, how is it that I can eat food and have less energy and then still have less energy to do things…?
