Holy, WOW. I haven’t written a blog post in a LONG TIME. It’s not that I’ve been feeling uninspired lately, it’s just that I have been getting back into some kind of new normal, seeing friends from a distance, going out and even somewhat getting back into work, that writing has taken the back seat. I have been learning to live with the new realities of the world. Honestly, it feels pretty good. I have felt more normal in the last month than I have since March when coronavirus hit hard.
Is anyone else completely shocked that it’s AUGUST? Where has this year gone? In my head it should only be maybe the beginning of May! I can’t believe that this year as unpredictable as it’s been has been is 5 months from being over. I can’t believe that the idea of uncertainty has become normal for all of us, that there is still really no light at the end of the tunnel yet, but for some reason I think that there is something peaceful about that?
I think for one, I’ve begun to really appreciate the simple things, a walk with a friend, dinner in the backyard with really good wood oven pizza’s, and sitting by the lake on a bench, watching the sun sink into the earth. I think that as much as we are all saying 2020 should be cancelled, It’s already shaped up to being one of my favourite years yet.
So here’s to me getting back on the writing grind, and here’s to all of us wandering in the unknown together.
What is something simple you’ve been really enjoying this year?
