Sun permeates trees, inviting Spring awakens dormant rootsLet it fill your lungs and spiritWith hope Lazy day today, though I did go on a walk and did a minimal amount of work. Fighting against cabin fever is so much easier when you can go outside and actually feel the sun warming your skin. I was fortunate [...]
Today was weird. It wasn't until after 1 pm that I looked up anything about the virus. I kind of feel guilty about that in a way? But I also think it was good for my mental health. I was working to transition my master's counseling course this semester to an online format, engaging with [...]
