COVID-19 is taking a toll on all of us. I was reading an article about shared trauma. We’re all going through it. I truly believe it too. I read something online which I am paraphrasing liberally that said we’re all operating at about 90% capacity. I’d expand on that to say some days that number is lower although occasionally we get closer to our pre-pandemic levels.
Fortunately, it will come to an end someday, hopefully soon. Maine recently updated their vaccination scheduled and my husband and I got our first shots last week. While it doesn’t mean the pandemic is over, it feels like progress and movement towards the end of this shared nightmare. When that happens I’ll be ready to jump back in to all the things I’ve been missing for the last year. It’s a long list.
I wanted a colorful visual representation of things to come to help me weather the monotony, constant anxiety and Groundhog Day drudgery of COVID-19.
