Don’t be afraid

I received my first dose of the COVID vaccine last week, but now I am worrying about getting the second dose.

“I feel anxious,” I told my husband Jerry.

“Don’t be afraid,” Michelle Obama advises. “Be focused. Be determined. Be empowered”

Okay. I’ll drink some tea. I’ll take a walk. I’ll think about the peace I always feel when I am in New Mexico with its big sky and lonely spaces.
