June and I have been foraging from the backyard, feeling glad to have an abundance of edible weeds. Violet leaves and flowers, mainly, dandelion leaves and flowers (though we don’t have too many), and now, garlic mustard and dead purple nettle, which we were thrilled to discover does taste like stinging nettle when sauteed. When the coronavirus social distancing began, we were both feeling agitated by the removal of our standard activities. June wanted to video chat with her friends, and I was annoyed to have so many hours to fill with activities for us. Now, however, we are a lot more settled into our lack of schedule, and honestly, it feels good. June does not want to video chat anymore, and is finding plenty to do. I think I am going to miss this unique lack of daily obligations, of places to be and people to see. The empty time actually feels very full and is making me more attuned with how to follow my own inclinations for the best thing to be doing at any given moment.
