“What am I Craving in Isolation?”
Sandy misses the beach. Do I?
I already have a beach at my doorstop.
Neighbours, convenient transport, cyclists, kids?
They are all around me too.
My kids have moved home due to job loss/constraints and we speak to most of my friends via phone, messaging or if they are locals, in person, but at a social distance.
The air is cleaner and the traffic calmer.
Life has slowed down.
I like that.
People are educating their kids at home, spending quality time with then that will become treasured memories in later life.
Time with your children can never be traded back later.
It is a once-only ticket to a perpetual show that changes EVERY DAY and never has an encore.
I feel pretty lucky to be living where I do – a great mix of city and coastal life, without the frenetic pace. But there are two things I do miss, Sandy.
- a good haircut
- sipping a cuppa at a hyggelig cafe.
