Isolation in a charming Spanish town
I am learning how to remember the past, accept the today, and dream about the future. Today, it is all about remembering the past. Seven months of relative isolation and containment, I am looking through my iPhone photos, and am reminded that I am so lucky to live in a charming and beautiful Spanish town.
At the moment, my town is in the midst of the ‘second wave’ and due to various factors (positive cases, percentage of ICU beds available, etc), Leon is now confined. This means that people are not allowed in the city without justification and people are not allowed to leave the city limits. Also, it was just released today that Spain has declared a state of alarm once again. I am not fully certain what this means, although I have read about nightly curfews and limiting travel.
Thus, developing coping strategies is a must for me. Today I have free time at home…I find myself wearing my most cozy sweater and wrapped in my softest blanket, drinking coffee, and in an effort to quiet my thoughts, I write.
Today, I think about the past seven months. Let’s take a photo walk – I hope you enjoy!
I’ll end with this – I read this often and remind myself that this too will pass eventually, take each day as it comes, and hopefully in the end we will all be a better version of ourselves.
Wishing all who read this, wherever you are in the world – much love, patience, and strength as we continue down this path of the unknown.
