“…every morning we are born again, what we do today is what matters most.” ~Buddha
I’m a morning person. Have been all my life. When I’ve traveled with friends, they’ve been amazed at my early to rise habit… of course, that also goes with early to bed. Sun up: I’m up; Sun down – I’m not far behind. And that’s the way it’s been for me with me for decades…until 2020 and precisely, early in March. Just days before we “sprang forward” with the clock, I got sick with a cold. And since, I’ve been pretty much homebound, facilitated muchly by the total stop Covid-19 has enforced on our lives, as we know it, all around the world. I do not complain for I am grateful for every moment.
During this time, I’ve had plenty opportunity to examine my daily habits. My mornings at the table have grown longer and longer – primarily because I’ve nowhere to go, no place to be. I’ve spent hours at the table: thinking, writing, reading, imagining, contemplating, and watching the sky change as clouds move in, around, out. I am noticing both new and different habits popping up into my days – as do the dandelions in the yard.
It is time now to refresh my tea and get a moveon with this day, the 119th of 2020.
