Life goes on

One of the things that still amazes me in a crisis is that life doesn't stand still. Because you want it to. You're in turmoil and you want life to stop coming at you for a few minutes. You want the mundane things to stop going on as you pause.

But it never happens like that.

Life goes on and the cycle must keep turning. Homework must get done. Critters must be fed. Kids must get bussed to and fro. Dinner must be fixed.

And writing must go on.

That's a hard one. Because it's hard to sit down and do what you do every day while your mind is somewhere else.

Yes, life comes at you fast. And it's all in how you react.

Sounds like you've been having a hard time, Mechele. Hope things get better.

It is amazing how normal life can be in the midst of a crisis. As you say, laundry still has to be done, meals prepared and the bathroom cleaned. I think that's part of what gives us a grounding and helps us get through a crisis.

Thank NJ. It's been a little quieter lately, which is good.

And I do really get amazed by just how normal life does have to be in the middle of a crisis. It doesn't stop.
