“I would prefer a thousand mistakes in extravagance of love to any paralysis in wariness of fear.” – Gerald May
An appropriate challenge word for the unfortunate times that we find ourselves living.
At my local supermarket, screens have been erected at the checkouts to protect both the employee operating the till and the customer. Markings on the floor warn customers not to get too close to each other, advising where to stand when queuing at the tills. Everyone is wary of everyone else.
I haven’t seen any of this because I’ve been confined to home for the last three weeks. I put myself in self-isolation before we were instructed, and this was partly because of my asthma, it kicked off as it always does at this time of year. My cough is a worry for my family, and for me, it’s an uncomfortable nuisance.
I stay at home because I am wary of picking up the virus. Secretly… I don’t mind being alone, I am enjoying the liberation, I can please myself how I spend my day, and I don’t need to answer to anyone but me!
The other day I posted a video of a very confident squirrel stealing the peanuts from the newest bird feeder. Yesterday I filmed a different squirrel, one that wasn’t quite as confident as the other, this one seemed confused and maybe a little wary.
