There have been so many times over these last eight years that I’ve felt so alone on CF island. For those of you who have paused and asked questions, you’ve helped me feel less alone. For those of you who admit you know little but you want to know more, you’ve been my hope.
For the first time, we all find ourselves on isolation island. We all find ourselves hyper vigilant and assessing every germ and encounter.
And until today, when I felt the threat that you all would be back on land someday and we might still be all alone, out to sea, I didn’t realize how soothing being here together for me actually is.
It’s weird, I know, to claim to be soothed in this time. It’s really, really weird. But for the first time, we’re actually safe and though physically we’re alone, in this mission to stay well, finally, we are not alone.
So I come back to the reality of this moment. I stop future tripping. I stay here where I am blessed and live for the now on quarantine island.
