I’ve started going on weekly walks with friends as a way to be social and get some exercise.
We usually get rained on and, as we need to do this late in day, most often walk in darkness.
I can report this is the event that I look forward to each week. Such may be a result of the isolation I feel from being home so much, but the simple pleasure of not being in the house and having a non-Zoom conversation feels good.
I like to imagine what it will feel like when I can have friends over for brunch, everyone sitting back unmasked and talking about the new set of problems that have taken over our lives. I’m hoping there will be a long moment when we can luxuriate in how good almost normal feels.
