During This Pandemic, Who (or What) Am I Missing?

Metaphysical and earthly musings on life, love, and loss.

This is something that I could never miss because it’s always surrounding us with effortless, buoyant love, cradling us during the most tumultuous of times.

I can never be certain, but this I know for sure: each of us is surrounded by love.

We worked jobs that we didn’t like to save up for our ephemeral move to the country, where living would be simpler, the air would be clearer, and most importantly, we would have more space to rescue animals and reorient our souls to the eternal wellspring of hope and contentment.

And now, here we are. My husband and I, our preschooler, and our many animal rescues, in a new place, with new neighbors, new school systems, and new friends.

All I know is that despite this social distancing, the pine trees continue to grow, stretching their branches toward galaxies near and far. The stars continue to sparkle and blaze, and the sun continues to pour its powerful rays upon us. We are one with everything.

And for this, we remain eternally grateful.
