The good part of getting older is being able to reflect on different events and stages of your life and knowing that “this too shall pass”.
I took a walk on the green-way of our apartment complex, the area full of grass and trees designated for walking and exercising dogs. It’s where I go when I want to be with nature, to ground myself and sit under a large Ficus tree. It’s a place where I can be still in nature. During this time of isolation due to the coronavirus outbreak it was even quieter, without the sounds of the maintenance crew cutting grass and blowing leaves. As I approached my favorite tree, I heard a dialogue begin in my head by saying, “Your life will never be the same.” I had heard the same words last month but that’s another story.
I realized that we were all collectively going through a major change and I remembered at the last time I went through a massive change.
