#atinylife stayhome

It’s Saturday night,

and I’m in.

I’m usually in, on a Saturday.

 

I saw friends and family today,

in little boxes on the computer –

it’s so much better than nothing.

 

I keep watching something

or reading something,

and forgetting.

 

And then I think ‘oh, yes.

We’re in the middle of a pandemic.

The last one was about a hundred years ago.’ stay home

 

I’m not even following the news much,

it feels irresponsible, but I just can’t

listen to the same story, but with bigger numbers, every day.

 

And I think, ‘I’m not

doing anything. Do I have anything

to write about?

 

There are stories out there

that are much more pertinent,

than a person who sat at home on Zoom during the pandemic, and found it quite difficult to write her weekly blog, all of a sudden,

but was basically fine.
