“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.” ― Criss Jami

In this week’s Wednesday challenge partner Susan and myself chose a very important word for the time we are living in : VULNERABILITY.
A few months ago we all considered ourselves to be like Superman: able to leap tall buildings at a single bound and were filled with strength and stamina and energy that seemed boundless and invulnerable to anything the world could possibly hurl our way.
Our actions and our choices to do anything we wanted to do were open to interpretation and the sky was just about the limit on our freedoms.
We could go for a stroll in the park, hold our significant other’s hand in public and wine, dine and shop wherever and whenever we wanted. No restrictions.
And then a biological monster silently and stealthily entered the biological arena. COVID 19 became the world’s Kryptonite and suddenly people started dying from its lethal effects and the ways we conducted our private lives and businesses were drastically altered.
As businesses closed and livelihoods were affected we all became aware of how vulnerable we had become and after a short time realized and appreciated the fact that this invisible enemy had gained the upper hand on the world in the short term.
This week Susan and myself ask you to share the ways this new world order has affected your life and the steps you are taking to make yourself feel less vulnerable and more in control of your daily life and not at the mercy of this relentless homicidal killer.
Feel free to use our challenge word Vulnerability in any way you wish. Stretch it to suit you. Words or pictures, anything goes and no rules!
