Getting ready, but for what?

For the past few weeks we've switch over from enjoying summer, to getting ready to go back to school and work.


Which means the usual doctor visits, gathering of paperwork and checking clothing against summer growth spurts (both of us!).

But as I go through our checklists, there's a nagging thought in the back of my mind. We're doing all of this, as usual, as normal but for what?!

I'm trying to prepare as normal for a life that is no longer.... normal.

New virus strains, a shifting housing situation, an unsecured job market, nature going on a rampage and a planet slowing but surely dying.

Honestly, how can I get "ready" for any of this. Or whatever the rest of these surreal years (years?) will be bring. There's no way to be prepared.

But I can't' just sit here. As the least, I rather be in the motion of my life when whatever happens....happens.

That's the most I can get ready for.
