It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so this entry will serve mainly to tell you that:
- I am alive,
- I am still actively writing on occasion, and
- I have hope that we’re going to get out of this someday
If that checks all your boxes, you can stop reading here.
Otherwise, I’ve been doing some mask sewing and home renovating and activist organizing to pass the long year. Since I qualify for the vaccine (on multiple fronts, thanks to my complex disability), I’ve made an appointment to get my first jab. I expect that even after I’m fully vaccinated, I will have some difficulty adjusting. A year of conditioning is hard to shake. Maybe especially because this thing will have no one day of victory, no sirens suddenly falling silent, no declarative moment when the state of emergency is over. Getting back to normal is going to be like walking rolling hills in tall grass. But at least we’re on the path now.
Hope to see you all at the top.
