#13 Wolt Wednesdays

 It's Wedensday! Time to order from Wolt! 

When school started at the beginning of the year I believe it was "Happy Hour Wednesday". I went to that once, but of course Happy Hour isn't so much my thing. Maybe it's because I don't drink or maybe because I'm not great at small talk, but I only went once. 

However, I love to eat. So when Happy Hour turn into dinner delivered through the Wolt food delivery app at someone's house, I was there--I haven't missed one since! It became the substitute when things were sort-of open but restaurants were restricted to delivery only. Wait--that's still how it is :(

With nothing else to do and no one to do it with, Wolt Wednesday is an event I look forward to. Some weeks it is the event I look forward to! It is such nourishment to the soul to gather (in a very small group, of course), laugh, cry, share stories and emotions. Every week I leave refreshed and reassured that the feelings of loneliness, emptiness and depression that randomly visit throughout the week also visit other isolated souls. I can listen to a hundred podcasts recounting the suffering that others are experiencing all over the world due to isolation, but hearing these women, whom I have grown to love and trust in the last 6 moths, say they, too have dark days is more powerful than a monthful of podcasts. 

Bon Appetite!

  1. Hold tight your friend circle. we are ALL suffering from isolation, loss of routine, loss of touch. Human interaction ALWAYS fills our soul and heart more than anything else.
