Strange sacrifices and a stockpile of courage

All of us face
the challenge of this time: 
a retreat into solitude,
an epoch of rebirth.

Unexpected opportunities for community emerge just as we had started to diss the digital. Those connections now feel more important.

Graced by morning coffee and simple phone conversation, the familiar consoles me amidst so many strange sacrifices.

A stockpile of courage, a cupboard full of resilience, and a resolve to stay low as much as possible.

The distance of loved ones weighs on me. Proximity feels such a luxury but video calls make the heart warm.

Cups of tea can be enjoyed gently now we’re not in a rush. The savouring of each sip is a chance to relish life itself.
