The husband has been telling me that I am allowed to go take a walk all by myself. Still, we live in a densely populated area so I try to stay home as much as possible. Yesterday morning though, I went out. Took my camera and a shopping bag. Tacking on a shopping trip makes me feel less guilty. (Went to the drugstore for medication. If we catch this stinking virus, it will be time to quarantine, not go out for meds.)
On my way there, it was cold and cloudy. Saw a few people but not what I would expect mid morning on a Sunday. Most people are staying away from each other. It felt a little sad to be honest. Spring is usually such a happy, social time. I’m not an extrovert in any way but I love that feeling of waking up after Winter. I know the social distancing is necessary. It’s still sad.
On the upside, the staff and customers at the drugstore were friendly while keeping a safe distance. And I got a lot of pretty pictures. I find myself more drawn to the softer ones. They have a dreamlike quality, kind of like how surreal the current situation feels.
And I bought a pint of Big Gay Ice Cream at the drugstore. It’s not my favorite but I’m in need of exuberant rainbows right now…
I love reading your comments! I will try to respond to every single one.
