Still a dreamer…Old Memories and New Hopes

How Are You All Doing?

We’re living in such uncertain times. We have no answers to comfort us. Watching the news 24/7 can be debilitating to say the least. The number of cases keeps going up. We have no plan. We need to have hope that life will go forward with positive energy. My heart aches for all the sickness, loss of jobs, racial inequality, loss of businesses. The dreams people had are now shuttered stores. I know families are using this time being creative and loving. Others not so fortunate. I was involved with domestic violence cases many years ago. Sadly, because of isolation , other families are suffering, not thriving. Children have to get back to schools, but at what cost to them and the teachers? I’m sorry to sound so negative, but my feelings are mixed with frightening thoughts. I’m still isolating having no desire to go outdoor dining. Difficult to concentrate and read. What works is a Mindfulness life . Continue my exercise routine and try to live in the present. …. and of course the ever present gratefulness for all I have. I’m not in a bunker. Hope you’re all safe and healthy. If baking sourdough bread, gardening, trying new recipes etc etc works. Sounds great. I think I’ll make oatmeal.

  1. Classical music and music in general has been my go-to mindfulness activity.

  2. There is so much uncertainty surrounding this Covid. Hopefully they come up with a clear cut plan to move us forward. Stay safe and take good care, dear friend.

    Thank you for the reminder of being “mindful”. Needed now more than ever. Will help in cutting down on experiencing “Groundhog Days'”

  5. You are so right. There is a lot of fear. I spoke with a friend yesterday who has lost an uncle to COVID and we know several other people who have lost loved ones. I feel we are not going to see the end of this for at least another year and I pray for the teachers and children who are trying to make the best decisions. My friend’s daughter is married to a police detective who has had to don his uniform once again and be on the streets at the protests. She lives in fear every day. I pray a lot and put my faith in God to see us through this crisis. He is the ONLY thing we can count on to be faithful. But being a Christian doesn’t mean we won’t also suffer….. it’s just sad. 😦
