CORONA DIARY: LOV3

This has been me for the past 3days now doing nothing in particular. Now I understand why many frowns at the idea of working at home because clearly there are many distractions. As I am writing this post someone is playing with my hair and I doubt I would say anything meaningful in this post.

Fortunately, I made two videos before my girlfriend came visiting. At some point, I felt it was a bit risky given the whole coronavirus pandemic. However, since the lockdown has been lifted I felt this was the only opportunity we had to see each other before another lockdown is enforced. The number of cases keeps rising and I feel another lockdown is incoming.

These have been the least stressful days of the year. I have little or care in the world. 

Most times when we are apart we spend most of our time texting and calling. Now there isn't so much need to talk when we can just be in each other's arms and do nothing. In this time silence is of value, the warmth and comfort of someone's arms wrapped around you are worth a million words. I wonder how my mum was able to stay alone without my dad for over a decade and never got to see him again. I think I understand her pain when she lost him.

The physical presence of your lover is more important than a million* I love you's*. This isn't just restricted to romantic relationships. We need the physical presence of our friends and family--those closest to us. It strengthens us from within and it cannot be compensated by any form of technology. There is no amount of texting or video chats that will compensate for my girlfriend lying right next to me saying or doing nothing. It feels tangible--her presence and my love for her.

These are going to be very difficult times for those separated from their loved ones. Thinking about it, someday I will be in a distant country, far away from everything I love and hold dear. It didn't seem like much of an issue about a year ago when I wrote about it. I remember @adetorrent mentioning the loneliness one feels when they are away from everything they love. I think this period of isolation gave me a glimpse of that. Yes, I'm reclusive and I spend most of my time indoors but most of that time is spent with the people I love. For long I have taken for granted their presence, however, it seems more important than ever having people you love around.

I will be headed home in a few days to be with my family after about 8 weeks away. Like I said earlier, chances are the lockdown would be enforced again. I haven't been keeping up with the latest happenings as regards the Coronavirus. I think the hype is dying down and people are beginning to realise that this might be our reality for a long time. However, here in Lagos, it's business as usual. It's strange that we are not been ravaged by the virus after two months and little compliance to the government and health agencies' directives as regards safety measures against the Coronavirus.
