quarantine sadness.

Hey Ya'll,

I've been a bit quiet the past week. Honestly I've just been on and off sad. Generally I'm good, so no need to worry too much 'bout me but I'm working on being more transparent. So, the truth is that I've been pretty down this past week.

Inspiration strikes kinda rarely these days for me without much change of scenery or person-to-person interaction. (Sorry Mom and Dad, I love you but we've been hangin together LOTS these past 4 months.) Anyhow, I've been trying to jump at those rare moments when I feel like practicing some music, writing, even making face masks. Never know when the next productive moment will strike.

Anybody else feel similarly? I can't imagine I'm alone in these feelings... crazy times.

I honestly think that if I didn't have wine and workouts (not in the order necessarily!) that I might be some scary shell of a human by this time into the pandemic. Those endorphins are hella real.

Ok, more soon.

- T

Whew! it's been a while! You know that feeling where the longer you don't call someone the easier it is to just not call? Yeah.... I think I did that to my blog and to YOU. I'm sorry :( First of all,

Yup - a rough week for me. So many reasons to cry - actually a various random moments of outright sobbing. Quietly, so as not to pass the grief over to family!! Or perhaps quiet because I am so private. Oh well - this WILL all keep changing.

You are certainly not alone, Taya, in having these periods of sadness. I think it's actually called grief. And trauma. The best thing for all of us is to FEEL what we feel and tell others... talk with someone about it, as you have through this post. Get outside for a hike or a bike ride. And be gentle with yourself. We are in this for the long haul. XO
