this was actually helpful for me as a way to reframe our current situation to better cope with the Time of Isolation... (when I was a kid, I wanted to go into space; my dad worked on the space program all while I was growing up) so in a way, I have this lovely spacious (compared to an actual space habitat) spaceship to be in aka Acorn Cottage, and I get to take at least one EVA every day aka walk around the neighborhood near my spaceship, and I can stay in contact remotely with the humans on my planet, even if I cannot touch them. All about the point of view.
today's gratitude - finding ways I can help, even when isolated. I am calling people I rarely talk to on the phone, and I have started sewing masks for a local womens clinic. And I never am not grateful that I have a roof over my head, a safe place to shelter me, friends and family that love and care for me, and a brain that despite my age remains flexible enough to tell myself new stories when needful
