It’s been exactly 8-days I’ve tested positive for Covid-19. For these several days I’ve been within the boundaries of my house doing what most infected people do. Mostly taking care of the symptoms. And, looking out my windows a lot!
I have gotten better since those days. A lot of us have gotten better, but it saddens me that so many suffered and have succumbed to Covid-19. And, it’s not over yet! Bright side is that we have the vaccines now. I am hopeful and I am sure I am with many who are hopeful.
Today is Tuesday, January 19th almost a month ago when I had tested positive. As I was quarantining, I wanted to keep myself busy. I like to workout, but I couldn’t. Fever, cough and congestion kept me feeling weak and tired. So, the best was to rest. Conserve energy, rather expend!
Today’s weather reminded me of last month, when I was sitting on the couch resting. My eyes were aimlessly focused out the front window. I quietly and slowly became one with my indoor surroundings transitioning into a soft meditative mode. Somewhat aware of the present moment I was in, I could feel and see things go to my mind through my eyes, and then leave my mind just as easily, quickly and gently. I was floating and really not holding on to anything! (Felt so good!) I noticed dried leaves flying up and down on our front porch brought up by the breeze. I heard the revving of the mail truck making its way from my neighbors to my mailbox. I could hear my dogs barking at the mail truck. Through the window, I was softly drawn to passing-by neighbors, who were walking enjoying that day’s sunshine. In and out of mind were my dogs continuous greetings (barking) to other pups walking with their families. It all felt so soft, so warm, so hazy and so beautiful! Daily life passing by like a story from a storybook.
I did doze off momentarily, resting on the couch. Loud barks brought me back to the very clear sunny present moment on that day in December. Surprisingly, I felt light and better. A bit more positive. Realizing life is going on well for so many others. Felt good. Outside looked gorgeous. Neighbors soaking-in the outdoors. Dried leaves dancing happily with so much grace. Looking up from my window, I saw a few white fluffy clouds drifting away cradled in the invisible breeze and disappearing. What I saw was unmistakably a vast beautiful blue skies! Suddenly I was full of hope. This too shall pass! We will come out stronger from this pandemic!
