Status: Guarded

Last night everything was prepared for the next early morning for sunrise photography. Unpromising weather but buying a chance, after two long weeks in the front line listening, caring, and encouraging to fight the killer virus to those suffering in their hospital beds, I forgot I have depression. Two weeks of waiting to hold my camera, to walk, smell the fresh air, and search my healing. All plans failed, breakfast with no taste and a rainy backyard. Camera waiting for the sound of a shutter to activate the motivation, I grabbed the chance, but my status is guarded hoped meds will work. Then, the forecast said it would rain all week. Let’s see.
