I wrote the last blog before I tested positive for COVID. So now, despite the fact our relative has moved nearer home, we still can’t visit. The hope was that the move would lead to more visits – not fewer!
And it’s really strange to be cut off from someone.
This is an age of easy communication by multiple means, so, across the day, we might engage in extended conversations with various family members (even if that family member is in Australia!) But then to be cut off? To be unable to ask someone how they’re feeling? To wonder and not know?
Ok, yes, we get information from other people (and heartfelt thanks to you – you know who you are) but that’s not the same. Time is passing really slowly and uncertainly. This doesn’t feel like we’re post-pandemic to me.
