Coronavirus Days--Month 14
This past week marked the end of the two weeks past my second Moderna vaccine, so I am considered fully protected. The week coincided with my spring break, and while I didn't head back to visit my parents and family yet (that will occur in May), and while I didn't go off to a tropical beach or even head to the mountains, I celebrated by doing what I had missed--connecting with people. Sure, I've been seeing some friends for occasional walks, with masks, outdoors, but I haven't had a bite or a beer in person with anyone since October, when the weather started to get too cool and surges and positivity went too high for my comfort level. Like many, it's that connection in person that I've missed, something a Zoom screen or a phone can't quite carry.when the CDC director starts talking doom, I go right there with her, imagining how many months of freedom I might have until my world becomes just the blocks near my home and my days are spent looking outdoors with my pets. But fortunately other news of low risk travel for the vaccinated moves to the top of my pile, and I remember that this roller coaster of life I (and many others) have been living since the start of the pandemic is not going to cease quickly. Too much is unknown. Much is uncertain. But for now, spring in Denver has brought warm temps in the 60s and 70s, and my hammock has taken up residence again in the backyard.
