We live in interesting times! The social distancing required by the spread of COVID-19 has brought many changes in our lives. Since I live alone, the changes are minimal. Yesterday, five of my friends brought our lunches to a lovely golf course adjoining one friend’s home. We set up our chairs six feet apart and had a lively discussion while enjoying the beautiful sunlit day. Blue sky and white fluffy clouds, cool weather and a good time had by all.
I can imagine we are entering a new era—one in which we live very differently. We have the connection needed to communicate; we can hold meetings from home; and many are finding they can work from home. Maybe we are leaving behind all the old habits from the industrial age where a whistle blows at 8:00 and 5:00, setting the daily parameters. Even school may find different pathways, better ways for us humans.
Learning continues to be my passion. Reading books, watching interesting programs, journaling, meditating, and playing music are enjoyable. I enjoy sewing and preparing my meals. As I said at a meeting recently, “I have a new job. I am a caretaker for a 91 year old woman. That woman is me. I try to keep her well fed, healthy, and entertained. So far, she seems to appreciate my efforts”.
I am available for friendly mentoring calls. My work continues even though I no longer have a formal office or routine. To make appointments, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
