“When I got sick with Covid-19 this past spring, the limits of my thinking mind were exposed. Like an intense buildup of pressure that triggers a dormant volcano, Covid brought all of my deepest fears, anxieties, and vulnerabilities to the surface — about my health, my heartiness, my luck, my future. As I got sick and then sicker and struggled to recover for weeks and then months on end, these feelings spilled over, dragging me down under their weight.”
