When you’re looking through glass at tomorrow’s history lesson, there are just some things that go through your head.
I worry that I won’t get everything done, that all the things I planned to write over the next ten years won’t get written. That I’ll die with series unfinished and stories untold and unshared.
I’ve gone a lot of places, I’ve met plenty of people, but writing is my life, and I don’t know if I’m going to be alive next year. That’s just truth.
I’m sheltering at home, but so many people in my area aren’t, and without masks. I don’t know anyone who’s died of coronavirus, but I don’t know how many people I know who will. And one of those people could be me. That’s just truth.
I work from home and I don’t go out. My dad is a Whedon dad; he does all the leaving for the household.
This is doing nothing for my paranoia and agoraphobic tendencies, to say the least for my thanatophobia.
One small but significant thing that’s changed is that I eat the ice cream and pizza now. Because if I’m going to die soon, I’m seriously not going to tell myself I can’t have the ice cream. It’s a good thing I really like working out.
