Isolation Journal

We have been on level 3 of the Coronavirus lockdown for a few weeks now. In NSW, Australia this means only going out to exercise, to shop for food and working from home, if you still have a job. Like everyone else I often get the feeling that each day is merging into the next. I walk my dog every morning, this exercise walk usually takes 2 hours and we get going at around 6:30 am.

This early start means its just coming on light when we set off and there is next to no traffic. Lots of off leash time for Queenie my 8 month old Groodle and a meditative, quiet time for me. Giving me some grounding and a sense of accomplishment ahead of my day. I usually walk with my iPhone, but have taken to including my SLR two lenses and a pair of binoculars.

The challenge is to not think too far into the future at the moment. I would love to hear how everyone else is coping.

  1. Yes Mimfilip, much the same for us as for you, we are just about to attempt a walk in the local National park if it is open after the Easter break. We have been using the time to clean and de-clutter, as well as on the computer, so it has had some good points, while everything else is on hold. We would have been in Greece and Turkey this week, so we are so thankful the Government stepped in when they did to stop travel.

  2. Similar here. I lost my job due to COVID19. I eat breakfast, exercise, walk my dog, write my blogs and then spend quality time with my novel that I’m writing. I’m feeling pretty liberated. Our numbers are still rising here in the US. Stay safe! 😊

  3. Life for me didn’t change at all, as I was already retried, and spending every day with my dog while my wife was at work.
    I hardly noticed any changes, save for the absence of any traffic, and people keeping their distance.
    Many thanks for following my blog.
    Best wishes, Pete.
