It was great to get my hair cut yesterday, seeing the white hair hit the floor made me feel good. Getting a hair cut was such a normal thing before covid and for the last year hasn’t been. When I left the barber I kind of had a spring in my step. On the way home I realized that so many things we normally take for granted have become a special thing now. Feel I had never truly appreciated those little things that were such normal things to do. Guess it is another side effects of covid 19 which has an unexpected benefit. It’s coming up to a year of fighting this pandemic with lock downs and social distancing. I now appreciate those little aspects of daily life that I just took for granted.
It was fun seeing Quinn after so many months and catching up on how she is doing. She has cut my hair for so many years that I don’t have to tell her what I want done. All I have to do is sit in the chair, we talk and she cuts my hair. One more thing I took for granted and really didn’t appreciate. Was nice leaving looking once more like a human rather than a sheepdog.
Thinking about different things on the way home I realized something kind of funny. We really like our new house and I especially like being outside in the evenings and hearing the wolves and coyotes. The funny part of that is on the wall in the basement, beside my chair, where I watch tv in the evenings are two pictures. A signed and numbered print of Terry McLean’s wolf heads and one of Neil Blackwell’s desert coyotes. I have had them for years and they have always been on the wall where I watch the tv shows I like. It is kind of perfect that I now get to hear the wolves and coyotes not just see the pictures.
