May 16

My writers group is starting up again and our assignment has to do with, of course, the affects of Covid 19. My method of writing is to think about the subject for a while, sometimes as long as a month.  Then ,when I get that Ah ha moment, it falls out of my head.So, I’ve been thinking of what I want  to say about how I was affected by the coronavirus. I still haven’t had that flash that makes me write down my thoughts. I suspect that all of us in the writers group have had about the same experiences,we share in the being sheltered at home. What about my experience that makes my sheltering different.? I am not having any inspiration, yet! I’ve had 64 days of sheltering. I probably win on that front. I had the experience of being caught up in Israel for 10 days of actual quarantine. I had the experience of being on an El Al flight with 100’s of Yeshiva kids who were forced to leave their studies and go back to their home towns, in the states. Once my 14 days of self quarantine were up and I felt fine, I breathed a sigh of relief. Now , I just practice what I know that I have to do, just like the rest of the people in my writers group. I don’t know. Maybe the inspiration will come to me about how the virus affected me.
