Today felt like it had at least two to three days' worth of stuff crammed into it. A new routine is emerging for me, and I'm sure for the rest of you, too. I took a nice long walk, and again, almost every person I passed said Hi! and even How-are-you?-Good!-Good! It's stunning how swiftly resiliency sets in—how we almost automatically make adjustments—how folks rally to find the best possible outcomes despite a day of tough decisions.
I've started attending live stream events, and I can tell that this first week or so might involve a lot of patience as we all get the hang of this. Nevertheless, I attended one dance party, one literary reading, and attempted to go to the opera. The literary reading was thoughtful and somber, which I needed. The opera really wanted to be viewed via its own app, which was a little annoying, so never mind.
It looks like it might become a daily thing, at least for the foreseeable future, so I highly recommend you join me tomorrow. It will get your heart rate up and your blood moving through your body, which is needed after all the Netflix and video conference calls and scrolling, etc.
BTW: Dance Yrself Clean by LCD Soundsystem is also such a great toe-tapper & good therapeutic dancing music.
