May is rushing

“These are days you’ll remember
Never before and never since
I promise…

…When May is rushing over you with desire
To be part of the miracles you see in every hour
You’ll know it’s true that you are blessed and lucky
It’s true that you
Are touched by something
That will grow and bloom in you”

“These are days” —10,000 Maniacs

This resonates today.

We texted T-3 and found out T-3 was sick all week. T-3 would have met today and wasn’t feeling well, so we scheduled a car therapy session for later this week.

Three of the lifelines we threw out—health insurance company, GP’s office, and a private therapist, all replied today.

None of them has yet offered to meet any of our needs. They will all, apparently, get back to us. Phone calls drain us like few other activities. We are grateful to hear from anyone. Really.

We saw a Hudsonian Godwit today, a shorebird we had never seen before. Spends its winters in warm climes and is on its way to the Arctic Tundra to breed. Thanks for stopping here, Amazing Bird! Also finally saw a Great-crested Flycatcher after hearing them for weeks. Beautiful yellow-tummied bird! This is May rushing over us.

Phase 1 of return to economic productivity for our region started today. Both kids meet a friend for social distanced bonding. We were alone in the house for… almost 100 seconds lol. Still, when your Spouse comes home from a long walk to find the children away… This is May rushing over us.

Then we did Shaking for 9 minutes. That is long for us. The people who looked in our window saw what they may have thought was an exorcism. We Shook! We use Osho Dynamic Meditation drumming on YouTube.

May you find May rushing over you with desire to be part of the miracles you see in every hour

We will not cling to this break in the clouds. All is impermanent. We will enjoy the rush and let it fade and look for miracles in every hour. Love to you in these days you’ll remember. You have been so supportive 💕❤️

    1. Thank you, Eliza!! 🐬💕❤️💙
      Can’t travel yet. Our fingers are crossed for June 1 (phase 2). There is a “Solitude Wilderness Area” 147 miles away that Older Child would drive us to for birdwatching.

      We have been finding hidden gems locally. Older Child took us to hills above a river for a lovely sunset. We saw and heard many birds, including a Barred Owl

    1. Thanks, Ashley. Birds are like substitute therapists right now. Birding helps with using our now senses 👂🏽 👀 🕰. Sometimes we get too hypervigilant and then the sounds scare us, and it’s a reminder to becalm
