I am looking back on this crazy year called 2020. We went through all these days of sheltering in place, yet my little resort town has been busier than ever. The grocery stores are packed. The airbnbs are all booked. I don’t see people sheltering in place as much as they are flocking to Palm Springs.
Does all the visitors to our town help during Coronavirus? It’s something I don’t understand.
It mostly younger people coming in small groups. I think they may be working remotely or not working at all and feel the need to get out of their cramped city spaces and spread their wings.
I feel the need to get out as well. I think being stuck at home for days on end is wearing on a lot of people’s nerves. I know my kids and many other young adults are experiencing anxiety, depression and all sorts bad thoughts from this lurch away from “normal.”
When I ask if we’re headed for another shutdown, what I mean to ask is will this one ever end?
Is anyone else feeling anxious, overwhelmed, or confined? If so, what are you doing to feel better?
