Living in a new world – Days at home (43)

Tuesday. Already.

A shorter week this week, and the kids seem to be ok. Going out for our walks, entertaining them, watching the Hobbit, and laughing a lot. We are ok!

I launched my online coaching course yesterday. That kept me busy. Today was more of a an ‘admin’ or catch up day. The rest of the week seems fairly busy, with the anticipation of finally getting back to ‘normal’ from next week. Fingers crossed.

Below’s picture might not capture the mood or the scene 100%. However, it is a picture of a church in Clayton, a small village close to where we live. Walking across the meadows, surrounded by sheep, looking at this old institution and beautiful building.

For me it captures history. How church had its place for centuries, supporting the community. Yet, whilst I am not into any kind of religion, the buildings and the institution will survive me. They remind me of a time when I was going to church, over 30 years ago. It will be part of anyone’s DNA growing up in Germany, a country dominated by the Christian belief.

Hence this picture captures childhood memories, steadiness, progression, peace and tranquility in uncertain times for me.

This too shall pass. It might pass like a kidney stone but it will pass.

I saw that quote the other day and had to laugh. We are going to be ok. We always have been, and we always will be. We will continue to dream, to form and shape our present, preparing for the future, and yes, we will look back one day and wonder what it was all about.
