Lets Stay Home


A month ago things seemed normal, but they weren’t, slowly and steadily this strange virus was making its way around the world, sneaking through airports, invisible to the human eye, invisible to those of us who thought NZ was a safe-haven from things like this, things that threaten the existence of, well, us. It seems like life has become a movie that is playing out around you and somehow you have become the main character, the movie is your life in graphic detail, but the movie doesn’t have an ending, or not an ending you can predict anyway. We all have to play our part, see it to the finish whatever and whenever that may be.

We’ve been told to stay home, to me I feel this is fine, its okay, I love home, home is my safe place… hence… Stay Home, Stay Safe. To others being told to stay home is a sentence (and that it is) but a sentence to be endured as opposed to enjoyed. Why? I wonder, as I’ve wondered so many times in the past; why is it so hard for people to stay home?

I have often used the saying Lets Stay Home in my blogs; if we say that now, so it seems as though its our choice will that make it easier for some… “Lets Stay Home” as opposed to “Stay Home” could that make the difference that will keep us safe… “Lets Stay Home and Be Safe”?

I am not home, sadly, I am staying with my significant other in the Country for which I am grateful. I have left my little house, but I have left it with someone who was in need of somewhere to stay for this period. Not being home is hard for me, being in someone elses home, being unable to do the things that I would normally do, being a… guest is difficult.

We are all making adjustments, changes, we are learning to be patient, we are learning to be kind, we are learning to live a simple life. I have shared this so many times before in blogs, but that was a time when it was a choice. We no longer have that choice, we must just do it, for if we don’t the world may no longer be and we need the world just as the world needs us.
