A resurrection would be nice right about now, eh? Resurrection as far as a return to normal life, social gatherings, and public events. I miss the NBA! I miss socializing in my little Altadena village where I live, where I run into people I know. I miss going out to eat! What do you miss?
So much feels “dead” right now – we can’t even visit our beaches and favorite hiking trails. This is, like, so un-American! I miss my freedom! Waaaah!
Okay, thanks for letting me bitch and moan. It helps a bit. I suppose it’s time to think of “alternative resurrections” . . . have you noticed that you are in touch with some old friends with whom you’ve not connected so much in a long time? I am talking to my single lady friends especially, my oldest friend in Chicago, and someone I’ve known over half my life in New York City. They are good at being alone, and they are helping me see it’s not the end of the world.
Right now it’s hard to imagine any all-encompassing resurrection that could change our current situation anytime soon . . . therefore, I suggest we find the micro-resurrections that make up our days. Just getting out of bed and making our bed in the morning is one. Making and eating a nutritious lunch, where nothing is wasted is another . . . completing any sort of task! Doing our daily self-care of nurturing our spirits, with prayer, meditation, journal-writing or yoga . . . all resurrecting of a life worth living.
Or maybe just taking a bath or shower, washing away the cloying energy of our anxieties.
What is the highlight of your days at this time? Let’s all let our hair down and share with one another what is keeping us going. Our Caring Circles were formed this past Monday, and everyone should have been contacted by now from a Caring Circle leader. If you have not, and would like to be, please email me right away at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to stuffing my face with Easter candy this Sunday! It’s the little things . . .
See you Sunday!
