Quarantine Blog, Day Eighty-Five

Yesterday took so much out of me.

It took me most of the day to work through what I’d call that op-ed that I wrote on my brother.

Today I spent some time researching where I could send it to maybe get it published, but it was overwhelming. I still almost felt wrong trying to get my work out there during this time. Because this isn’t the time for me. And I accept that, and applaud that.

It’s nice that I have this little corner of the world, here on my blog.

There’s no competition to beat anyone out.

I just have to keep one-upping myself. You know how like, once every ten days I just have one piece that’s way stronger than the nine that had come before? That’s the only competition.

Today’s is a breather. Some others may be too.

But while I take steps away from thinking about the blog, I’m still signing petitions. I’m still trying to figure out what to do now that quarantine is slowly lifting. I’m still reading and learning.

The work doesn’t stop.
