Since social distancing began, I have been living with my friend on her family's ranch in Liberty Hill. I'm originally from San Antonio and my mom works in the medical field, so with my compromised immune system, it's a higher risk to be at home than to be here, in the middle of nowhere. I stumbled upon the pond and have since spent time sitting there every few days, and it's proven to be my favorite place to clear my mind from all the anxieties surrounding this pandemic. I've learned to appreciate the little things during this time, and this pond is one of them.
