No one lives forever. I am always surprised by people who act as though they are going to never die. Live each day, as though it might be your last. Don't put off till someday, the joys you might have today.
My hair has never been this long. Not even when I was in high school in the 1970's and long hair was in style, was my hair this long. It has been about 11 months since my last haircut. I am getting close to the creepy old man ponytail. I can't see the risk, of sitting inches from someone, who is within inches of 10-20 people everyday, just for a haircut. It will wait. Then I may do something equally radical in the other direction. I have to admit, longer hair, is harder to care for.
I have started looking carefully at the photos I take, digging out the books, and identifying the birds I am seeing. A Black-Capped Chickadee, a Sharp Shinned Hawk, there are many more to look up. If I learn a couple of month, that will be 24 more than I knew before.
Social distancing, has led me to understand another quirk of my personality. I am uncomfortable in crowds, and long have been. I mentioned this to the hubby, and he was kind of "oh you finally noticed that!" I avoid crowds. When I have to be in them, I stay around the edges, and often look for a fast way out. This is nothing new, when I first started traveling by air frequently in the early 1990's, I would often stay in my seat until the plane was nearly empty before exiting. I usually took a window seat, and I would just let them all go before getting up. (I now want to board first, and usually sit near the front so I can get out fast.) This year, with most people avoiding crowds, has been a joy for me. Interestingly small groups, 3, 4, 5 people don't bother me.
