Social distancing

Friends, we currently have 2 introverts and 2 extroverts in our family!

The introverts are just fine with social distancing, because it’s a natural and they already love the space. On the other hand, the extroverts (hand raised – HIGH), are out meeting the neighbors and going through isolation withdrawal.

This is for sure uncharted territory for all of us, so for me, being a social person, I’m grateful for any moment of normalcy.

That would be like inviting the neighbors over to sit by the fire with us. A way to connect and get to know them …

Honestly, I’m used to hosting a lot. So in my mind and reality, I’m trying to make some peace with uncertainty.

But we can still gather, through our shared words and experiences. We can find strength in each other.

We have a place in our backyard that is perfect.

Writing this piece, sending it off to you, is my way of reaching out a hand. Please, feel free to grab back. We will hold each other from afar, for as long as need be!
