I went to my office to work. On a much needed break to …
- get coffee
- rest my eyes and
- absorb some sunshine to replenish my Vitamin D stores
… my work wife and I go to the only place that is open around the immediate office area.
Until this past weekend, we have had back-to-back rainy or at minimum dreary days. This did absolutely nothing to ease to ease the cabin fever that was beginning to sink in. Another reason I was grateful when my work wife offered a ride as she was going in as well.
Let’s see… Be in a car for 40 minutes with a person I know is not sick or spend over an hour on mass transit around who knows how many strangers who either are not able to observe the at least 6ft of social distancing being asked of us while riding the subway or who simply refuse to observe. I think you can guess which path I chose to take to work.
Three weeks ago in the New York City before Covid-19 there were scant signs heralding the early spring season; not so any more.
The very first of the tulips planted annually had begun to bloom! Even better was the sight of these…
The Cherry Blossom trees had blossomed! I had not realized how much I missed seeing these annual harbingers until I saw them. For a moment it felt like a normal spring day. Then a masked person walked into view.
Still, I smiled at the reminder that THIS is what’s normal and we will get back to it soon enough.
It is so hard that every small choice seems like such a risk. At the same time, so much glory in nature. Last night the moon was huge and luminous… I’m thankful my sister sent me a message to ask if I was noticing it.
Oh I was so happy we had a clear night to enjoy as well. Nature is amazing. Thanks Diane.
It seems that we are weighing choices we never did before. Signs of spring can’t help but being a smile to our faces. At one time we had tulips planted around our house, but the squirrels thought they made a tasty meal so we lost them. Realkt, I don’t mind feeding the wildlife.
Oh man, those pesky squirrels just don’t understand. Thanks Arjeha.
Yes, that is what’s normal. Those cherry blossoms and tulips are so beautiful. They aren’t worried at all about Covid-19, are they? This will pass.
No they are not. Thanks Denise!
