After today’s second dose of the vaccine,
I feel freer but not free.
I will follow my bliss but ever so cautiously,
And here’s something to know about me when we meet again,
I will not shake your hand or anyone else’s hand for that matter,
Alas, I will hug you.
See, I met a doctor at Kripalu when I were there, from March 6 to 8, 2020, a few days before the world shut down.
She, the endocrinologist, told me that hugging’s safer than shaking hands.
Namaste, she and I said when we parted,
hand to heart probably safest still.
I signed up for an online Kripalu zoom class because I miss the vibe. The class began yesterday. And we were invited to
make a wheel out of the areas of our lives.
My wheel looked a little deflated.
I miss the walk down to the lake.
We will go again, hand to heart.
Be free. Follow your bliss.
