Pandemic log: Day 1058

Or is it Tuesday? I honestly have trouble recollecting. As the hours slip into days, weeks, months, years . . . the doldrums encroach on my reality.

Rolling recursion: get up, eat, do shit, sleep, repeat.

I feel the air itself closing in on me and I need to escape my privileged hermitness to venture further than the yard, the neighborhood, the city. I need to get out of this place.

‘If it’s the last thing I ever do.’ that’s what the song says.

So I’ll be daytripping to define the endless doldrums I ride upon.


Written for 100 Word Wednesday: Week 158

I can’t get this song out of my mind, which was my other inspiration for the story…

The other song referenced? We Gotta Get Out of This Place by The Animals

When I use my own images for our prompts, I often preview post them on Instagram where we can follow each other!

Are you on Instagram? If you aren’t, you should! We’d love to follow you there!! If you are, reach out to us so we know who you are!! Let’s build our writing community both here and across platforms!

Let’s get social 🖤

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use — Links provided.
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I try to read them all and post your submission in the Weekly Windup.
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions!
