April 29

When I talk with my bubble people,aka my family here in PT, we all agree that we can pin point the day when our lives stopped and a vacuum engulfed us. I remember everything of that last day in Jerusalem when I finally had a flight to the states. I would still be there if my daughter hadn't worked to find me a flight. After that flight, there is a void. What happened to  2019 until April 2021. I am not alone in this other life experience. . I hesitate to say this, but the slower life is not a hardship. Miss friends, of course. Sad about not being with kids and grandkids not in my bubble, of course. But over all, , a slower pace,less stress,fewer distractions , fewer options has been OK. My first hamburger, sitting outside at a local restaurant, appreciated even more because it was the first hamburger since, I  can't even remember. Maybe we will now savor every experience that we have because it's like it is the first one since we stopped keeping a calendar.
