my plans

PHOTO PROMPT © Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

i have spent too much time gazing out my window. i must go outside.

i’ll walk through the field behind the house, the one i’m always looking at, all the way to the woods. a path in the woods leads to the river where a rowboat is tied up to a sycamore tree at water’s edge. the rowboat will have an oar in it, maybe two. i’ll paddle down the river to our town and past it all the way to the city. in the city i’ll go to the airport and fly to the other side of the world.

Q: which pre-pandemic activities are you ready to resume (or have you already resumed)? which, if any, pre-virus activities are you likely to continue to avoid?

A: with everyone sheltering at home, i had the roads and woods and small essential shops to myself. now, with everyone beginning to emerge, i must pull back.
