Self-isolating during the COVID-19 Pandemic

I am not finding it easy to be self-isolation. When I returned from New Mexico on March 16th, the self-isolation was a requirement upon returning from travel to US. Now it is not forced, but the public health order requires that I have a good reason for leaving my home. Yesterday the loneliness had me in tears. Today I want to think of each day as a door, and to explore what is on the other side.

This is one of the doors to the Koln Cathedral, a masterpiece of monumental Gothic architecture. This doorway is encouraging me to think big. Paradigm shifts take decades, even centuries, and its okay for me to dream that big. I wish every person in the world would take today to think their biggest ideas – to imagine flourishing – to yearn for peace – to write a song that inspires a generation.

So today I will imagine myself walking through this portal into one of the world’s greatest cathedrals. Just because.
