Enough with the guilt. We’re still in the pandemic woods, and the priority is survival.
My journey through Covid isolation has been made so much better by the writers, and the podcasters (and seasons of English TV on Britbox). As a retired person, my outer world has shrunk, but my inner world has been so enriched by folks like the entire Swisher clan, favorites and funny videos on Twitter, a few choice journalists, and authors. As I get my 2nd shot tomorrow my world can slowly start to open up, but I made it through. Thank you so much for what you do!
Thank you for writing this piece. It made me realize things that I wasn’t aware and wake up from my numbness.
Thanks Amanda for writing this poignant piece. I feel less in the woods having read it. I’ve been procrastinating more lately and experiencing an empty numbness and your words brought me back. I don’t agree with your kind friend about being behind in your career. It seems while you are focusing on being a mom you are savoring being in the moment. This makes your writing uniquely observant, vulnerable and sweet. In hindsight I wish I had savored that time more. ps, perhaps charge the people who can afford to pay?
