Meditation No. 5, Foreseeable Cache
A few weeks into the March 2020 lockdown, I became ill with Covid. We were in Idaho for a one-week trip. Then the world literally stopped. The virus lasted seven weeks...we stayed for three months not wanting to return to city life in Los Angeles. Testing was scarce, we had a president prescribing bleach as a cure-all, and no one knew anything. Two years later, with vaccines, boosters and new variants, a sick friend told me she couldn't image what it was like being sick without the vaccine. I can tell you, it was no picnic. It messed me up emotionally, physically and mentally for many months.
In the fall of 2020, I wrote an essay about my experience for The Artist of Possibility, a spiritually minded magazine conceived by meditation teacher, Jeff Carreira. Published in January 2021, the issue about Loss, Grief and Transformation. Images from Foreseeable Cache accompany the essay.
