Per Linda G. Hill:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “day/week/month/year.” Use one, use them all, use them any way you’d like. Enjoy!

A year ago when we locked down, someone suggested that we should all keep physical journals. The idea was to treat this time in history of interest to future archeologists.

That was enough for me to try.

The above became my contribution to the future information diggers.

I was faithful filling in my descendants with all I knew and how it was affecting me and mine.

I touch on emotions and politics. And the thought hit me, ‘What if technology of today no longer exists in the future for whatever reason. So I wrote so far as my knowledge went to explain television, internet, computers, etc.

Don’t ask why I got so into that issue. But it was fun. How would you explain this stuff to, say your ancestors who still only had candlelight, maybe even no books yet? I was thinking about that as I wrote.

Well, I was dedicated daily until August. That’s a lot of months of journaling. No diary in my life had me writing by hand past a week at most. So I was proud of this little tablet that was nearly half full when I made this entry.

I guess I owe my historical- epidemiologists more entries. If they found the book as it is, they’d probably think the author succumbed. I’m sure they would shed a tear, shake their heads, and move to the next historical site. ‘Poor thing didn’t last the year.’

So for their sakes, I will write an entry as soon as this is posted.

In this handwritten masterpiece I will state the facts of actual cases and deaths. How they were loved and treated by overworked health workers and how they had to die without family or friends in horrid pain.

But keeping with my original idea I will show my gratitude that most of my loved ones managed this difficult year.

I will include that two of my three besties have had their first vaccine. That two of us are still waiting.

Fears of future possibilities will be expressed while sharing gratitude and happiness that we may all see each other by the summer.🤞 Hopefully an Independence Day is coming like none other! 🇺🇸


Over the weekend I played with my newest present to myself (not given to me by a cat). I noticed I hadn’t written in my COVID19 journal. No, I don’t have it. I started it on March 22nd. At that time I wrote in my erasable gels. I was steady with it Faithfully documenting what I saw on the news and how it was for our household. I got all the way to April 4th with a very short boring entry. Then I started up again on May 16th. I was able to test each of the pens and I wrote as much as I could about how things are now.

This is a cool set. I can’t wait to try them out on my coloring projects. Even so, they write smoothly and I love all the colors.

 

Here is the Amazon site I got them from 100 Pack 

Just talking about them is making my fingers itch, so I think I’ll stop here to go write an entry in that journal.

By the way, I was happy to get to be a part of the writers’ group tonight so that means it must have been Monday.

Why is Monday still hard? I haven’t worked for years. Yet I’m always tired and disoriented on Mondays. Has anyone else had that problem? How did you solve it? Anyway, I hope you are all staying safe and healthy.
