Today at Fandango’s Dog Days of August prompt, we are to write about something that brings us joy.
This is a tough one since I’ve lost my job due to Covid19 and lost a few friends (other illnesses & accidents) over the last several months.
There are two things that bring some relief to the depression and boredom: writing (when my creativity isn’t jammed up) and studying Hebrew.
Hebrew requires my full attention and concentration since it is read from right to left, has different characters, obviously, and its vowels are dots & dashes beneath the letters. Anyway, trying to suss out meaning demands that I forget about everything else for a while. In a way you could call Hebrew my happy pill in that it makes the world go away.
