City Series – Wendy O’Hanlon in Coolum Beach, Australia, We the Isolationists (100th Corona Diary)
Our corona diary.
[Text and photo by Wendy O’Hanlon]
I close my eyes in self-isolation from corona and I see the waves rolling in nearby me. I hear, feel the crashing. I ‘see’, hear the stillness of the night – the day – a calm black, yet brightness. Soft rain.
I feel a swell of warmth. I AM HOME. In the midst of this global pandemic, I AM HOME!!! I close my eyes and feel safe, warm – for the first time in many years.
Hands and minds touching me from across the world – and yet we dare not touch… I see the Earth breathing. YES!!!
My eyes are still closed – I still hear, feel, sense.
Alert, but peaceful?
We were right about 2020 being a decade of change… we just could not have imagined THIS!
