RDP Monday: DELIGHTFUL
There isn’t a lot to delight in today.
I am cut off from my family because three of them have underlying health conditions that could leave them vulnerable to the Coronavirus and I am riding the train into Seattle everyday to go to work where in all likelihood I could be exposed to the virus myself.
I have entered the ‘ social distancing arena ‘.
On one hand I normally lead a very solitary life- I am a writer and to be honest I don’t exactly mix and mingle the way I used to. So putting myself into lockdown after work right now isn’t exactly putting me out . The only difference in my life is my pizza delivery is taking a little longer then normal and my grocery deliveries are taking longer then normal too.
So am I withdrawn, world weary- maybe even on the verge of becoming anti social?
Well no I’m not and this is how I know that for a fact.
My dog is one of the most happy, outgoing, social and friendly dogs, that have ever had or known.
He wakes up wagging his tail and doing his version of a happy dance once he gets out of bed. At night he piles his favorite toys up near our front door- I’m not sure why he does that exactly, but he seems to enjoy going through the process.
I’m guessing I helped bring him to the place where the world is delightful to him and everything in it is just…PAWESOME. So I shall keep my eye on Hamish because I think he is my emotional barometer and if it drops even a little I will go out of my way to bring it back up- for the both of us
but mostly for him.
