I arrived in Melbourne, from Chengdu, China, on Sept. 23, 2019. With all the talk of coronavirus and masks, pneumonia and respiratory illness, it occurred to me that I have not been sick since I left China! During my 18 months of living in China, I was nearly constantly sick due to air pollution (and stress)...I had continuous cycles of bronchitis, colds, and flu... escalating at one point to near hospitalization. Now, I am free from illness, relishing the clean air/food/water of Australia. I have been free of illness for over 4 months! Wow! Never thought I'd be grateful for NOT being constantly sick. But there it is! On the road to health again! I am grateful! I am grateful for my health! I am grateful to breath clean air, drink uncontaminated water, and eat unpoisoned/uncontaminated food! Yay!
surprised it is 2020! Holy crap when did that happen!
