I like the word “doldrums”. It accurately sums up how I feel now that we’ve started 2021. I feel like I’ll be stuck in the same hermit pattern I’ve been in until mid-April or so. Fun.
Did you know “doldrums” is actually a nautical term? It’s the name for the area near the equator between the trade winds, where ships can become becalmed for long periods of time.
But it’s a good word. It sort of sounds and feels like what it means. but for me it also evokes that drowsy boredom that comes with being stuck somewhere waiting for a change.
I certainly hope change is coming. Vaccines. A new administration. Pain reduction for mom. Better weather.
Here’s hoping for movement.
