this will be a short post. I tested positive for Covid 19 yesterday and have been in quarantine. My son and grandson Andrew also tested positive. Would appreciate some prayers for their health and fast recovery. We are all doing okay I think, not a major set back of any kind except for the feeling of isolation and the lethargy. Don’t expect any new post from me for a while.

Thank you.

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    I will be praying for the whole family and yes, YOU even if you didn’t ask for yourself. This is scary stuff and makes my heart ache… Please let us all know how you are doing periodically since complete silence increases our worry and concern!

    Oh gosh. Sorry to hear you and your family got the Covid virus. But I am glad to know you are now ok. I lost an aunt to Covid in January. Some relatives also got sick and tested positive for Covid but they all are ok now.
