OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
It is horribly frightening when your loved one disappears behind a door like this. Especially during a pandemic that makes everything – from diagnosis to care logistics – infinitely harder and even more scary.
My love has been behind this door since yesterday. It is not Covid-19. What is most important is that he is stable and is going to make a full recovery. I am allowed to visit him. We can communicate. We can say ‘I love you’ and know that the other person hears the words. And love is a miraculous, infinite source of strength.
And I am infinitely grateful to experience it.
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
