We are in a brave new world, and journaling about this pandemic-quarantine experience is helping me get through the long days. Some days we are motivated. Other days, less so. The only way forward is by going through it. I posted this journal entry on my Facebook wall on April 1, 2020. I wanted to share it here, too. Courage, everyone!
Today, I ventured outside and went to the local supermarket.
Surreal. Weird. Unsettling. Calm. Resilient. Tense. Distant. Communal. Uncertain. All of these sensations hit me at different moments as I walk through the empty streets.
