They used to refer to the pandemic as “The Great Pause”. I haven’t heard that in a while. What with the catastrophic consequences of this illness and public health crisis it’s hardly been a time of calm, quiet reflection. One thing for me that comes close to a time of peace has been my walks in nature. Nothing is more reassuring than the green and the flowers and fresh air. But still my mind is busy and distracted with worries. In years ahead when COVID is a distant memory I think I’ll still be distracted with worries. Why? Because before COVID I was distracted with worries. Is it just me or is it the human condition?
But nature is the salve to many a hurt. And will always be a consolation.
