Crimson’s Creative Challenge #182 – Self-Isolation

I’m locked inside at the moment. It’s called self-isolation as I have tested positive for Covid.

Last week I was in Tasmania on a touring holiday with two friends. This week I’m holed up at home.

It was a wonderful trip, so many beautiful places to see and enjoy. We did visit Port Arthur wherein the colonial days it was a convict prison. A terrible place, people lived in appalling conditions. Then in 1996 a fellow went there one Sunday and shot 35 people.

Our history is what it is but it is a moving place when you consider what once happened there.

Apart from that place the rest of the state is magnificent. Sweeping coastlines to intriguing temperate rainforests. It was my second visit and as enjoyable as the first.

My isolation is allowing me to ponder how lucky I am living in Australia.

  2. Bummer with the Covid Michael. Have your friends tested positive too? Hope your symptoms have been mild and you are well on the road to recovery.

    Oh no! That’s a real bummer, Michael. I had it for 10 days. Tested positive on Easter Saturday. It went through the whole house as well as my grandkids who were with me on the previous Thursday. Hope you recover quickly and have no lasting problems.

    • Michael says:

      Thanks Lyn tomorrow is day five and I’ve started on a anti viral drug that will assist in my recovery. Despite that the trip was excellent

      • Lyn says:

        My doctor considered putting me on an anti viral drug, but decided since my Lymphoma is in remission, he’d just monitor me.

  4. Happy pondering, Michael, and a swift recovery with no complications. 🙂​

    Good to hear you enjoyed your travel with friends. Bad to hear you are now isolated with Covid. Hope you are well on your way to full recovery.

  6. Yes, sometimes, we forget how very fortunate we are.
    Hope you are on the mend. Rest is beat. I still have a tiredness that has lingered
    longer than I would like. Be Safe … Get Well soon.
