I’m beginning to wonder what will happen when we get the Covid ‘All-clear’?
Look at what happened when WW2 ended – people going wild in the streets. The general feeling of euphoria was expressed in popular culture, especially in the movies.
The feeling in those post war years, has been likened to the world….breathing out, after all those years of tension and restrictions.
It’s what we do – though we might not even realise we’re doing it at the time. My Mum was very ill – she died – I realised that I’d been in a state of tension for three years. I only realised, when – it was over.
I wonder will something like that happen, locally, nationally and globally? We’re all….up-tight at the moment, and will probably continue to be so for some time to come.
Being aware of this and taking steps to work with it – whatever works for us personally – whether meditation, gardening, knitting, walking, running! Listening to music, dancing – even if it’s only alone, in the kitchen!
Then, when the ’All-clear’ sounds – what then? Parties? Hard to imagine what it will be like.
I envisage a party with the people I like to be with, and the music I like to listen to – dancing dancing dancing.
I know, there’s the being able to hug people again – being able to meet up with people again. For some, including myself, just being able to go where there are people again – out for lunch or in the evening. But, that’s day-to-day, as we settle back into our lives.
I’m thinking of when the ‘All-clear’ first sounds, and we’ll need to ERUPT!!! It’s only human.
How do you picture it?
