I felt so much better today. Part of it was due to the pressure of the BIG day being gone.
Knowing it wasn’t a day like Easter day, where I would usually see my family, well it made it easier. There was no pressure on what the day should have been, no expectations.
And also, the SUN was out.
We took a walk, because being at home is something we are all growing so tiresome of.
We had to.
It was so gorgeous. The walk along the Esplanade showed us dozens upon dozens of other walkers alongside bicyclists, and we were all getting out for some much-needed vitamin D.
I am so aware of the impact on mental health this isolation is causing us. So, so aware. And after the day that was yesterday, I know I need to look after myself more, give myself more time outside, taking walks, spending time in the sun, because the days ahead are only gonna get shorter, darker, and colder.
So once home, MORE sun. I took a book my cousin leant to me, and read it out on the balcony.
The Light Between Oceans. I’m still at an early part of the novel, but it’s getting to that addictive point where the characters are infiltrating my thoughts. I love them already and am already future crying for what’s to happen next.
Baby girl, and then Hubbie soon joined me. All we needed was the cat, and the bird. 😉
And then I snapped this up on the balcony. Clear, blue, crisp views.
As a contrast, this later tonight.
I felt it quite telling, metaphoric even. The clouds crossing the sky. Half clear, half murky.
And it made me think…
I think we might be half way there. Through hardship comes clarity.
Or just, the sky was part-cloudy?
You be the judge.
