I grew up hearing “Good fences make good neighbors.”
Good headphones are the good fences of this pandemic. At least in my home.
We are four adults, two dogs, and a cat trying to work, attend school, Netflix, and socialize within these four walls. I think we are doing a creditable job.
Can we use this pandemic to invent something called Fence Parties? On one of our next sunny days, I want to see if our neighbors will set up a picnic on their side of the chain link fence where we can see them from our picnic on the other side. What do you think?
This reflection was generously paid for by client X, who was unable to find a way to reconnect after her phone died five minutes into her video therapy session. I thank you for my lovely respite during one of the busiest days of my week.
And now to hit “publish.” I will not be damned by my overthinking tendencies today.

My neighbor and I both live on our own. We have walked right through that fence! Every Friday, we make a fire in one of our fire pits, bring dinner and sit 8 feet apart. We sterilize everything, use separate serving spoons and dishes and BYOB. Blessed to have her!
