I am running out of ideas on how to entertain myself during Corona Lockdown.
I am used to self- imposed quarantine. I could go on for years without talking to anyone. That’s not the problem. The trouble is my world suddenly becomes smaller.
How long you could run around the neighborhood and be still in awe of what you see?
I love nature. But believe you me, no matter how great that love is, if I see another river, another poor excuse for waterfalls, another forest, another mountain tops, I would scream till I have no voice anymore left out of sheer frustration.
How many versions of those one could take without being bored to death?
Trees are just trees and water is just water no matter from which angle you view them.
I could understand that the same rules apply if you go further abroad but that is not the point. Ever heard of the journey being more important than the destination? That is not the problem either. The problem is the journey on a familiar road going to an even more familiar destination is becoming tedious it drives me crazy.
I want to explore new horizons, do new things, see unknown whatever. Anywhere but here for crying out loud.
I want to see trees and water and rocks on foreign soil. Observe unfamiliar cultures. I want to taste and try new dishes, I want to experience life again!
But life would never be the same again. I see it now. By all means, as long as I can run around out there without restrictions, free as before then I’m okay. I don’t even have to talk to people. I just want to go places that’s all.

When my nephew worked on Midway Island, what he missed most was getting into the car and driving somewhere. He, you, and I need to know we can go to another place.
My mum has the same nature. I can walk beside a not particularly nice local stream – barely a stream as it neither flows, nor is full of water all the way down and it only stretches half a mile or less – and never tire of seeing the wildflowers that grow beside it, even when they become more and more just grasses. I don’t think we can help our natures.
Someone said: The more we veer away from our true nature, the more unhappy we feel. When we align with our better selves, we feel happy and content again.
