Quarantine Diary – Day 60

May 21, 2020 – Day 60 of Quarantine

Last night while moving, meditating, and writing I realized that I am needing more daily comfort and care. This quarantine is wearing me down! I decided the one concrete thing I can do for myself each day is to take great care in creating beautiful and satisfying drinks and meals for myself each night. It will be time to slow down, create some beauty in the day, and nourish myself. Evenings feel like a gentle reminder that I have made it through another day. Why not use the time to create an amazing cocktail or pour a glass of amazing wine and make myself a truly satisfying meal?

This afternoon I ordered supplies from a local winery (yes, Brooklyn has a rooftop vineyard) that has beautifully curated packages with locally sourced supplies. I lovingly created my first Aperitivo spritz while my favorite frozen pizza cooked (baby steps, I made an kale salad for lunch, including homemade dressing). And you know what? It felt amazing to care for myself in this way.

Song I’m listening to today:

I teach yoga, write, and edit. I live in a Brooklyn neighborhood that is changing faster than I can, or care to, keep up with. It's basically gentrification at its finest. Manhattan still beckons me to her island a few subways stops away, reminding me of when I lived amongst her daily hustle and bustle.
