Now is not the time to let your impatience get the better of you. Normal is coming, whatever that looks like, but for the time being you’ll have to sit down away from people to eat and the bars are still closed. You can do this.
Returning to the real world will bring its share of new stresses so put on your comfy undies when they force you kicking and screaming back into everyday life. You don’t have to be on point from day dot, ease into it like a pair of warm slippers.
You’ve had a lot of time to think, hopefully you’ve used it wisely. Lying to your friends about your new porn addiction is not the path to long term health. On the plus side, at least you’ll soon be able to make some new ones. Friends, not addictions.
Home never looked so good. The real world will be there when you’re good and ready. Take your time, mind your space, and remember that everything needs a warm home when it’s cold out. Even the mouse family living in your crawlspace.
This might have been the hardest on you of anybody. But the stars have a rude truth in store for you at this time. Nobody has missed you as much as you think they have. Except your mum. You really should call her more.
There’s no point in overthinking it. The truth is nobody really knows, nor would the answers necessarily satisfy if you found them. Things will happen as they will so ride the wave. And take a shower once in a while, the water feels nice.
It’s been the best of times, it’s been the worst of times. It’s been truth in the paradox. The Taoists found it. The Quantum Physicists found it. Turns out it’s not either/or. It’s both. As a wise man once said: results are in amigo, what’s left to ponder.
Well, that was intense. Just like every other day. Life is a big old intense rodeo but that was a hell of a ride. What has broken in the background? What has been quietly building? The next little while will be a very interesting time to watch. Don’t forget to tie your shoelaces.
It’s time to write that book you’ve been thinking about. Some people might try to tell you that the time to start writing it was 6 weeks ago when the country literally shut down and you had nothing to do but write it. But don’t listen to the haters, the Playstation wasn’t going to play itself.
My, my. It’s amazing what you’ve done with you’ve done with the place. You can do a lot with time and energy directed to your own projects instead of selling your time and energy for a wage. But it couldn’t always be like that. Could it?
What a way to end a summer. The days are shorter and colder but there is grace in that change. The desire to hibernate satiated in lockdown, it is time to explore the nighttime of this place. A new world awaits.
You probably read every one of these. And you probably found yourself in a little bit of all of them. Funny how that happens hey? This is all familiar territory to you, swimming in the unfamiliar. You lived through something that will be talked about for centuries. Enjoy the surreal estate.
