Life in the time of Corona – Captain’s log: Day 18

I didn’t sleep well. I think I got preoccupied about whether or not I had some of the symptoms of COVID-19 and that formed the basis for a bunch of turbulent dreams. Luckily I can’t remember anything, other than I woke up in the small hours feeling unsettled.

I find that social distancing is getting to me. It is weird and lonely and I have to make a conscious decision not to eat all the snacks in the history of snacks. I am thankful that I have a few hobbies to have a creative outlet and I notice that I do a lot more of it than before. It helps that I spend more time at home of course, but also I think I make an effort to do something that makes me happy.

Today I had another online music lesson for guitar and it really just lifted my spirit. Its incredible to learn something new, and music has the ability to spirit you away to a different world where there isn’t a global health crisis going on. For a little while I can think only about the music and the possibility to make beautiful sounds. When we get to the other end of this, I will be able to rock this thing, way more than I thought I would, at any rate.

In the middle of the night I also thought up another creative idea, but I am going to keep you guessing on that for a while….

Be kind. Stay safe
