Stay at Home, Day 7

Tuesday, March 24, 2020

I thought a lot today about emotional labor and how my capacity feels diminished.
I thought a lot today about grief and my slow movement toward envisioning a new normal.
I thought a lot today about the definition of “essential” and who gets to measure it.

The dog grooming place called; they were still closed,
but two employees remained. Would we like to bring in our dog?
As I made lunch in quiet, I could feel his absence at my feet.

One thought on “Stay at Home, Day 7

  1. I hope you have a yard in which to work. I am thinking that everyone will have beautiful yards this year as we will all have the time and energy to put into that bit of personal greenspace.
