The slide

This post was originally published on this site

And so on December 2, I am suddenly feeling rushed. The holidays are around the corner. I am trying to meet multiple commitments, and deadlines and I continue to find myself wondering where the time went?

Sheltering in place made time seem to slow down, and now… well I am not certain I will get everything done that I need to get done. And while I know, intellectually, that the virus is not responsible for this shift in perspective of time, my emotional self is shaking a fist at the Covid-19 pandemic.

I suppose it is easier, perhaps even a trait of humanity, to look for someone or something to “blame” for things outside our control. And since the virus cannot argue in its defense, it becomes a good focal point for the frustrations of the season.

In perusing social media and the various neighborhood apps, I am worried for the folks who are truly adversely affected by the virus – either through loss of livelihood or illness. So while I am juggling my responsibilities – I will take time to consciously be thankful that I have these challenges, and to make time to help those less fortunate.

I don’t know how much time I will have to blog in the next few days, so in case I don’t write to you between now and then:

May your days be merry and bright! And may you all have health and prosperity now and in the coming year.
