What rapid adjustments we have all made in such a short space of time. In a world where years race by, it turns out that a week can feel like a very long time. Such seismic changes to our normal lives we are all accommodating.
At the moment I’m feeling ok. I’m a hardwired optimistic and by nature a problem solver and planner. I’m choosing to see more opportunities for my business than threats, I kind of like being forced to slow down and I’m finding genuine joy in the ways friends and neighbours are using technology to stay connected and support each other. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely do not think this is a good thing, but my way of coping is to find solutions. One of those, by the way, has been to volunteer as a Red Cross community reserve volunteer; you might find it helps you too.
Of course, one of the things that I’m not looking forward to so much is the lack of sex! It’s definitely a bit weird not knowing when I’m next going to be naked with another person. Ten days ago I was looking up exhibition tickets for an April date night, today I was dusting off my remotely operated WeVibe for use during digital date nights! One of the things I’m doing to stay connected to those I have love or lust for is sending a daily photo. A photo a day is going to create an epic stock for future Sinful Sunday and February Photo Fests! This is the best one from week one of physical distancing.
