When I headed out for my walk early this morning I could easily pretend it was any ordinary March morning, one before we ever heard of corona virus or Social Distancing.
The wisteria and azaleas are in bloom, the birds were singing everywhere, and every step I took I gave thanks for still being able to take a walk.
My daughter in Munich texted last night that they are now allowed only to go for a solo walk in their own city block, to the grocery store, or ‘apothecary’. She works from home, lives alone in a small city apartment; so far away from home it’s tough to be so isolated.
I want to share a couple links that have brought us pleasure as we stay home. The first one is nature sounds from our beautiful national parks, “ will virtually transport you to national parks across the country with sounds captured by the National Park Service.” The second is for full length concerts from our nation’s wonderful symphony orchestras, also free.
I also want to recommend the movie we watched last night, Its a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. Its a moving and uplifting story based on the life of Mister Rogers from the children’s tv show and it’s delightful.
I know several of my readers live alone and I want you to know you are not abandoned, you are thought of daily with fondness and caring. I hope you all find happiness in counting your blessings this Sunday.
You, my blogging friends, are one of my great blessings.
