The good news is that anyone who is so over this pandemic has plenty of company, and the better news is that we’re resilient and smart enough to know when and how to recharge our batteries. Personally, reopening the gyms in NYC has been a lifesaver for me, a truly centering experience (and helping build back my muscle tone and bone density is a real plus).
Other readers who commented mentioned training therapy dogs (cute animals and walks for the win, Sharon!), Russ is rolling with it just fine, Terri regrets cancelled trips and her underused camera, and Linda took a much needed break to rest, cleanse and recharge. Carolyn noted for her it wasn’t the pandemic, it was the constant ‘fear factor” in political discourse; B/D had a different view.
We’re going to leave the comments thread open, so please continue to keep us posted!
