*waving from my side of the mountain*

I am not exactly sure where April has gone, for me at least.  It is one of those Rip Van Winkle moments where you feel like you’ve been somewhere else, and then, spooky sudden – you are right back…here  – wherever ‘here’ happens to be at the time.  Make sense?  Sort of?

Not until all this scary business began with COVID-19 and I was forced to slow down in order to ‘wake up’.  Upon waking, I have seen 100% clearly just how horribly down and uncertain I was.  Now the fear has over-run the ‘down’ and determination is slowly overcoming the uncertainty.  Does this mean everything is straightened out and I know where I am heading now?

You are right:  Nope.

It means, more or less, my proverbial feet are finally back under me and there is energy to use to help change things for betterment in general.  The energy level should increase the more I do each day.

Today I began doing a light stretch standing on my feet at the doorframe of my room.  It is going to be a struggle to keep going, so I am seriously counting on the determination here.

What have you learned in this quarantine?

About Henrietta Handy

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

    The biggest changes in my life have been having to plan grocery shopping in advance, and teaching course online over Zoom.
