Covid nights and days
How are you holding up? I think I’m barely making it and I think that’s true of a lot of people. I recently complained, online, about my weird sleeping habits lately and the likelihood that they’re related to depression and anxiety. I’m thankful for all the responses, which were so encouraging and sympathetic. I now know that I’m not alone in this. (It’s good to be a complainer sometimes.) My practice, when I’m down, is to make a list of good things. So, here goes~~
Two potential publications (those will turn into bad things if I get rejects, but I’m used to those)
My family (I dare anyone in the world to say they have a better one than I do)
My friends (ditto above)
My readers (I don’t even know all of them, but do hear from some of them sometimes—those are golden spots)
My present occupation/career/work, writing mysteries
My colleagues/fellow mystery writers, many of whom are friends, all of whom, as a group, are the best co-workers anyone could hope for
My health, such as it is. Good for my age, is what they say, I think. This includes my mental faculties, such as they are, too. Also good for my age.
My overall situation, being able to afford eat, drink, shelter, some presents for my kids and grands
Feel free to add to this list, or, better yet, make your own!
