ON THE BACK BURNER

I wrote this for a writing group that I belong to.I am asking my friends to write their thoughts and add to mine. The subject is Using or Losing your mind. 

 

Using or losing your mind. Actually, I don't feel as if I have a mind right now. My thoughts are jumbled. My mind doesn't focus. Maybe I lost it and I wasn't told. My mind is easily distracted. Maybe it is lost some where in what use to be my normal world and it didn't take me with it. Ask me what I am thinking and I would say " nothing". Nothing  good, nothing positive,  nothing I want to share. My mind right now is consumed . My mind is being drenched with Covid numbers. My mind has one thing on itself. It wants to keep me safe. After sheltering for two years, my mind says" I'll be damned if I am going to let you get sick now". My mind won't let the rest of me do anything that might, in the slightest way, put  me in a compromising position. Even if my brain tells my mind, "oh, come on, one indoor restaurant meal, one trip to a crowded venue.What have you too lose. Scaredy Cat". Well ,yes I am. Maybe the best thing would be to lose my mind. Using it isn't so much fun.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
