It’s today (haibun)

A lovely visit today from my son and daughter-in-law that warmed my heart so much!  What a treat to chat with them from my sunny balcony.  Neighbours passing by who were out for their daily walk and nodding, smiling and greeting us under these unique circumstances.

Many walkers were crossing each other and like a smooth dance they would pull away at least two metres or more and once passed, they would resume their pace and space on the sidewalk.  It makes me feel safer seeing how my street is so respectful of this and I think it relieved my son to see his mom lives is a safe neighbourhood.

When I mentioned it was Monday today, he said, “No, Mom, it’s TODAY…everyday is TODAY now.”  So today is my first day of my vacation and what a great start I have experienced today.

uncertainty is real
fear is no longer my ally
compassion rules
family and friends
reaching out far and near
