ON THE BACK BURNER

April 1

A lot has happened out in the world during this pandemic . Politics,mass shootings,floods,fires, protests,police misconduct,insurrection, vaccines,stupidity,un necessary deaths,lying and cheating. Did I get it all. But, in spite of this,time for me,personally has almost stopped. The time distance from January 2020 to March 2021 , doesn't seem that  15 months has gone by. If I had been told that I would sit in a 27 foot trailer with only internet, and the NYT, no library ,but Amazon Prime and be perfectly OK with it, I would have said that you must be kidding, and why would I have to do that. I don't get it. How did I go from being busy, having the company of friends, attending meetings, entertaining ,going to religious services, playing Mah Jong to being content, doing none of the above.I still don't get it. My world shrunk and I don't mind. I am not bored. I read what is going on outside and I almost don't feel part of it. I don't think that it is indifference, or lack of compassion, I just feel more like an observer than a participant. For better or worse, I am in a time warped bubble. I think that I have successfully stopped time. I have jumped from Pandemic to vaccination to almost normalcy ( soon maybe?)
