Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you every week by Linda Hill. Check out her blog for the rules and the contribution of other bloggers.

This week’s prompt:

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “sky’s the limit.” Write about something that has or seems to have no end. Enjoy!

The sky’s the limit when it comes to topics for blog posts, but I am struggling these days. I am drenched in sorrow about what is happening in our country and it is hard to shake. How do we just go on as ‘normal’ after all that has unfolded? But try we must.

Don’t you miss planning a trip when things were calm and the world was healthy?  I am not a huge fan of flying, but I would have done it in a heartbeat to get to a desired destination. I could sit down at my computer and make reservations to go anywhere in the world as long as I had the money to pay for it. The sky’s the limit once you and your bags are on the plane ready for take off.

I asked my husband where he would most want to travel if and when we get beyond the Covid fog. He immediately named all the cities where our children and grandchildren live. Beyond that he mentioned Florence, Spain, Portugal, and New Zealand. I talked of Ireland, England, and Tuscany. What is life if you don’t have big dreams to aspire to?

Now, with the virus surging, we shop a lot online where the sky’s the limit on what you can buy. We have ordered everything from a load of building supplies from Lowes, to a lawn mower, soap, and even the cabinets for my studio. All done online and delivered to our house.

Outside of seeing our family, I look forward to just seeing faces and sharing smiles with strangers as we relax back into some sense of normalcy.  I am cautiously optimistic.
