Coronavirus Days--Week 46
I almost took the week off from the blog, feeling like it was one more thing waiting for me to do. But alas, I did not. The habit is strong after so many weeks. And I much prefer to end my weekend with this instead of working on my classes. Teaching again fully remotely and online means that computer time is increased, and so I find myself more resistant to doing other things requiring the screen and keyboard. But honestly, that is all one big excuse when it comes to writing, since I know that if I just sit with the work of words, I hit a groove and never regret the time.
On this Sunday evening I am tired from the weekend walks, but a good kind of tired, the kind that reminds me I am so very much alive, even if that alive is in a time when vaccine envy will enter our pandemic lexicon. Life continues to be this paradoxical study in contrasts, holding the moment against the uncertainty, holding hope that the smallness of my world will continue to open back up, bit by bit.
