(This post is part of a series of daily letters from me to my future children reporting from the emerging paradigm.)

Dear Kids:

Friends in the hospital for non covid illnesses. “Traveling right now could be lethal.”

California just rolled back to phase 1 reopening.

Feels like everything changes by the minute. More hard news… And even still. I found some real joy.

Tonight, after I finished teaching my aerobics class in the woods; I ended up losing all track of time just walking and dancing and enjoying the splendor of the forest path I walk every day.

Somehow it felt new again because I brought a level of delight and enthusiasm to it.

Mindfulness practice has helped me segment experiences so life doesn’t have to feel like an endless bummer when life is lifing at me.

Look for moments of joy in whatever little things you can that’s the best stuff. The slivers of ordinary glee.
