It’s hard to believe that it’s been 44 years since The Beatles recorded “Here Comes the Sun”, especially when I think of how appropriate that song is to my current living situation!
The last few weeks have been a complete blur. I’m lucky to have a place to stay while the work gets done on my house, but I had to spend a few days living without an internet connection. I never realised how heavily I relied on the world wide web! Everything from managing my bank account to looking up random information depends on my internet connection, so you can imagine how lost I felt without it!
You’d think that without internet, I’d have more time to devote to writing my new book. Unfortunately, though, it has been just the opposite. I’m trying to get back into my writing routine, but it’s been tough to concentrate! In fact, my emotions are still all over the place. (The dogs are still feeling the effects of the fire, too. After the scare we all went through, it’s easy to understand why they stick to my side like glue!)
But through it all, I’ve had the love and support of my family and friends. They’ve been my “sunshine” lately, making me laugh and smile.
Over the next week or so, I should get a little more settled. I’m hoping to get things out of the boxes and into some kind of rhythm. And, of course, I’m hoping to feel a little less deflated as time goes on.
As long as I can keep laughing and smiling, though, I’ll have enough “sunshine” to weather this storm. Like The Beatles said all those years ago, “It seems like years since it’s been clear… Here comes the sun, and I say it’s all right.”
