There are times when I have moments where something in the world slaps my wandering mind into the present. I will notice someone or something out in the world and have this wave of reality flashbake itself into my awareness… “This thing exists even when I’m off doing something else.” There’s a term for this: Sonder.
There’s a blog post just before this one, it was written over a year ago. It’s funny now to see what my mindset was just three weeks into a pandemic I decided to play with the idea of blogging again. What I wrote there was earnest, if somewhat naïve.
Pandemics, apocalypse, and opportunity. Maybe, just maybe, I should be using this time more wisely.
