Surreal, as in humor
producing events and behaviours that are obviously illogical.
Yesterday as I was thinking about the Covid-19 virus this
is what came to mind, surreal. It is beyond my comprehension, not something
I have experienced in my lifetime. There doesn't seem to be an answer
to how this came to be. For awhile yesterday I watched a live conference
on global/environmental issues and I have seen articles on environmental,
global warming issues that could effect the virus's living dormant around us.
But for me, an unscientific person it is all surreal, it doesn't make sense.
Are we really living in the Twilight Zone?
That is how it feels.
On the last days of March in the past few years these were the pictures I was focusing on.
Flowers and Springtime!
Walks in the country!
More flowers and Easter coming!
And now we almost have to laugh because it is so surreal
that we are shut in our homes, living in fright at something unseen,
but so devastating and so worrisome, that we can not really comprehend it.
How are you doing through this time of isolation?
My "live-in gardener" and I walked to a little neighborhood market
and I was thrilled to find a can of garbanzo beans on the shelf.
Score! I can make hummus now to go with some crackers on our shelf.
It's the little things that are bringing JOY.
But still it is hard for my mind to wrap it's head around this.
It definitely feels "surreal", rather illogical in so many ways
that it just makes me want to laugh and cry all at the same time.
Take care, dear ones, and for now stay put.
There will be a time coming when we can once more dance in the streets.
