ONE YEAR AGO exactly - I was invited to a friend's BBQ get-together.
ONE YEAR AGO exactly - I declined that invitation.
I was hearing about Covid-19 a while before, but it was on this day a year ago - that it hit me that Covid-19 was here. It was close to home. And it was serious.
A couple of weeks after there were official shut downs in my state and may others, and life hasn't been the same since.
But it was ONE YEAR AGO when I started seeing, feeling, and following the signs.
This is a somber anniversary, a melancholic one, an anniversary I wish had never happened.
But knowing that we are merely a year in and vaccinations are being distributed in a relatively fast speed all over the globe... is making me hopeful that NEXT YEAR will be a joyful anniversary.Next year there will be gatherings, and hugs, and BBQ get-togethers that I will happily attend. Here's to next year!
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
