This is my song

It is too early to say whether the journey I began in March to look for my word song and the magic I’d thought I’d found when I read the Kalevala has categorically been a success. I am not yet settled into the word song I’ve been hearing in my mind’s eye. I had already noticed the sense that there was a rhythm in the keyboard; something I hadn’t heard, even faintly, for a decade or so. Now I wonder if the year of the pandemic, which was working on pandemic time, so it took 18 months or more, had atrophied the basic social skills and left one feeling lost without people against which to fit oneself into one’s mental model of an ecosystem – a hyper-local and interdependent web of value exchange that comprises one’s daily life circle of human contact/s. It took the return of social interaction to complete the missing part of my search for my word song.
