I am blessed to be able to uses advances in technology that let me see my friends on my cell phone screen or laptop but I have not seen them in front of me for over a year. I’m sorry but a video chat is just not the same. No sitting around a fire pit laughing at each others recent experiences. No more late night tacos or grease pits.
No more hugs, no more being there for them when they need me. Everyone is on their own right now. Everyone is still pretty much stuck right where they were a year ago when this pandemic started. I am still in Saigon / Ho Chi Minh Vietnam. My one year anniversary was December 31st.
I am now more found of my memories, I hope you hold yours close too, Until we meet again, stay strong, stay safe.
Call your mother, tell her you love her.
