I am learning that this period of quarantine is a gift. I am finding a new sense of connection and appreciation for others.

I never considered myself an extrovert, but I am finding a new found need to connect with others. I love the image of walking down the street wearing a mask while waving to another masked individual.  It evokes the image of maintaining safety while still reaching out. And for this I am incredibly thankful.

I guess this might, in some ways be considered a silver lining.  I am learning that I need to be and connect with others and I love this new found sense of community.
