Drizzle and Fog. It’s inevitable if you live near the ocean. This is my reality living in St.John’s, Newfoundland. When the fog bank rolls in, you can expect it to sit on your head and fill your mind with images that linger in a monochromatic haze.
Kind of like the day when I was first diagnosed HIV Positive. The days following that news were heavy and grey. Before long, it became apparent that the forecast had to change on the horizon. Would the sun break through the humdrums?
Here and now, four and a half years later, to find out that there are ways to add color to a somewhat bleak crisis. It’s a mix of hope, attitude, information, support, strategy, goals, vacation times, sipping lattes, naps, and lending a hand. I know…a long list but everyone’s list is as individual as the individual. Think about the first flower that you see in bloom after a grey winter. Colors come around and give us something to smile about.
