We have now spent an entire summer distancing from one another and that has been taxing on everyone. The September 12th Winnipeg Free Press headline declared that it has been six months since the first Covid 19 case was reported in Manitoba.
Although the weather was quite wonderful and there was lots of sun and heat so that we can feel that we ‘had a summer’, nevertheless, there is that constant niggling feeling of being confined.
During my August three week retreat/holiday time it was a joy for me and my siblings to gather one time at my brother’s farm for lunch. We’d all been isolating in our family bubbles since the end of January. At last we were physically present to one another.
