Zen has been difficult to come by this year. But I’ve discovered that going back to my roots with song lyrics and poetry, online choose-your- own-adventure books for adults, coloring in my adult f-it coloring book, and reading my dad’s three-part novel has been able to help with stress and make me feel more relaxed. I’ve also discovered YouTube. Before the pandemic, I used YouTube to look up a song or get help with a website issue. Now, I’ve found so many interesting/odd people my husband and I follow. Who would have thought we’d enjoy watching kids eat foreign food or Irish people try spicy candy or watch people who watch people and react, but it happened. I’m hoping Zen will come by means of theatre in 2021.
