Life certainly feels a bit lackustre at the moment, even the spring sunshine somehow feels tinged with shadow. But it’s funny how quickly we get used to things, adapt to our new realities, however surreal this whole pandemic situation seems to be.
For me, it’s staying at home as much as possible, furloughed for the forseeable future, and for my husband it is running the gauntlet of going out to work in a supermarket, one small cog within the complex gear-system of the food supply chain.
We miss seeing our family and friends, but of course we can still keep in touch with them remotely. We have a comfortable home and a well-stocked food cupboard and we have each other, so thankfully we still have hugs and the comfort of human touch.
For all of us, whether staying at home or a key worker of any kind, all we can do for now is keep living as best we can until the time comes when we can all start to feel alive again. Life is a precious gift, and I’m learning to appreciate just how much I value it ❤
