Have you had enough of someone telling you what to do yet? Well, we can expect more of that these days.
Indeed, where would we be without some good advice? I find myself scrambling constantly for "informational relief" on the internet or Youtube. "How deep should a cucumber seed be planted? And how much moisture should the potting medium have?" As you can appreciate, I have been gearing up for a few vegetables, and I have been praying that I not make the back yard a complete dust-bowl. By nature of the gardener (a term I use lightly), odds are against me.
Hoping the old back holds up, I have been doing circles around the house -- pulling this hose over there, wheeling that mulch to here. All this outdoor time has given me opportunity to observe the other dog's life.
Perhaps you have noticed this in your neighborhood: People. In particular, families walking to get some air or pushing strollers, engaging in activity that seems healthful and wholesome. Kids are not being zipped across town for essential practices. Instead, they're writing witty messages and drawing smiling suns in chalk on sidewalks. Neighbors are sitting out on their porches and chatting with ambling neighbors about something called corona and recommending good movies they've seen or books they've read. I must say, I kinda like this sliver of today's reality. People being people, the way I remember it from 1972 (minus the long hair and perfunctory peace symbols). I sincerely hope you are experiencing the small joys of life in ways that invigorate your health and ease your mind.
So, do I have anything more to say than this? Perhaps... but not especially. There's plenty enough of that these days.
God bless all.
