Here we are at the far end of May, Memorial Day. When we started this month it felt like it would last forever, yet another stretch of sheltering in place.
But it was gone in a blur, a series of slides of the view from my window, a collection of lounging clothes.
Outside today it is blue and green and dotted with what remains of the flowering trees, my favorite part of spring, missed until next year. Parks are still closed, as they should be, I was walking on Saturday and people crowded the sidewalks, many without masks despite the requirements.
I don’t know when or if this will ever end, not with the packed scenes online, people on boardwalks and in pools, jammed together defiantly.
We’ve entered a realm where reality is not reality, and the masses agree, whatever you think is what it is, until it’s not.
Meanwhile, a moment to honor the men and women who have lost their lives in service to this country, and the many who have lost their lives needlessly at the hands of this regime.
Don’t know about you, but after months of this sheltering in place, here at the far end of another week, I am tired of the sound of my thoughts. They’re willfully disorganized and very, very loud.
So many times I’ve tried to file everything neatly away in there, but they force themselves out of the drawers, tumbling, one after another, an inside-head tornado.
Definitely too thinky.
And they aren’t productive thoughts, they aren’t thoughts I can run with, because everything wants to be done at the same time.
I think it’s this feeling of having nothing but time to do things, it makes you want to do…nothing. Who isn’t at their most productive with deadlines looming?
Today’s Daily Burn 365 workout was a fundamental yoga one, and I found myself everywhere but in the moment, itching to be more physical, to do anything but be still and breathe. I think I’m out of practice.
I ended up doing the Daily Burn HIIT workout on Amazon Live afterward, the exertion helped.
So that is me on this Friday, thinking I need to get yoga back in my life. You have a magnificent Friday and a perfect weekend.
