Hilary Hahn plays Bruch’s Violin Concert. Another beautiful composition. I realize the music in the journals can make a very special playlist!
“The further you get away from yourself, the more challenging it is. Not to be in your comfort zone is great fun.”
Today it is a little over 2 weeks that we are home bound because we had to isolate ourselves earlier. I have not been bored for a moment, yet. Rather, the days are too short!
I miss going to the gym and exercising in the morning . My new knee yearns for the gym’s bike. I long for a sweaty shirt on the bike. I miss the chats in the sauna. Those conversations are fun. It ranges from very serious topics, very deep to very funny anecdotes. I wonder how my sauna pals are doing in these times.
Google says fun is enjoyment, amusement or lighthearted fun.
In lockdown I have lots of fun. I enjoy the things I do. I ‘m learning new skills. I am on a Whatsapp with various people and that activity ranges from serious topics to memes and funny videos. Being a loner, I can enjoy my own thoughts. Sometimes I can just shake my head in amusement for where my thoughts can go..
When I think about the things I would still like to do, then another 7 days are not enough! (It was extended, but I cannot say I am excited by it. The economic effect is to hard that I can’t feel excitement, even though I can see the necessity.)
More and more I find myself wondering what the first thing is that I do when I come out of lockdown. I suspect it is going to be hard to take up my old routine again. I ‘ll definitely go gym – but I do not know if that would be wise! Lockdown might be over, but that does not mean the virus is over! I do not wish for the virus, that would be stupid, but if I have to get the virus, I would prefer it now during lockdown. It will be a double whammy to get sick after being in lockdown for so long!
I am grateful my people (in the broad sense) are healthy and safe. I ‘m grateful I have come so far and I’m emotionally in a good place. I think one can easily end up in an emotionally bad spot in these times. Although I am stunned by the figures and cannot think it reflects the true story, I am grateful and I still hope for a miracle in South Africa.
