one day at a time

October 6, 2021

There are few words sager than, “one day at a time.” It’s what a wise person said to me in March 2020 when the world turned on its head. I’ve been trying since then to take small bites out of life, only what I can digest, and not looking too far ahead. The weekend forecast? Too far. It’s early Autumn, and with the first few days of October came drizzling rain, orange leaves and cobweb covered hedges. The Halloween decorations are pissing me off, frankly. I find them unsightly and premature. Can’t we just embrace the smell of smoke and falling leaves and the sharpness in the air? Can’t we enjoy the month without feeling catapulted to its gruesome end? My kids on the other hand love the ghouls on our neighbour’s lawns. They love them for the same reason why we plant peonies in the Fall, or buy woolly socks in the height of summer. It gives us something to look forward to. And after 18 months of unpredictability, and countless cancelled plans, we all need to look forward, to whatever it is we are looking forward to. One day at a time.
