Writing through Covid

November 17 to December 19

Covid seems to be causing a buzz in the frequency of my life. Luckily my routine is not affected too much. My office is in a bright corner of the basement with a big window out onto my back yard and wild garden. My work keeps me there for much of the time and the rest of my life seems to be spent trying to figure out the weather so the pup and I can hike. I have bringing the garden into the kitchen in manageable bits and putting it down for enjoyment during the winter days. It all seems to be a reflection of last fall and yet, there is that buzz. It is soft enough to ignore it for days on end but it lives in my belly and comes with tension or anxiety attached, something that if I think about, I would say I don’t have and yet behind every action, every decision, every breath, it is audible. It makes me itch, continuously glance over my shoulder and wish for peace. There are a few things that offer me rest from it. One is walking, taking in the spicy scents and the sound of the corn stalks rubbing their dry palms together in the wind. Another is meditation. It is in the sitting trying to think of nothing that the Covid noise becomes very apparent, and the third and the one I am turning to most, is writing.

It is not surprising that I have an urge to put pen to paper. It is something I have been doing in times of joy and strife since I could hold a pen. In so many ways, it is my meditation.

And I would like to invite you to write with me.
