Be kind, be careful, be safe…

I met this young mother who brought her daughter outside to read… Lovely

I’ve been absent from this blog for quite some time… indeed there have been many “Changes in our Lives”.

The pandemic began on March 13th… nearly 6 months ago. The weeks crawled by and I found myself with COVID hair (AKA an over-grown haircut) and COVID size pants (No explanation needed) I needed a mani-pedi. I wanted to go out (anywhere!) And the wine rack was nearly empty.

At first I felt the need to express my views about the pandemic but after a while, what was left to say? I don’t like bemoaning my fate… so many have it a lot worse. And I noticed something else…

Creativity is the only thing that can save me. I painted more than I wrote and I cooked recipes I’d never tried before. I had fun.

In July, I needed to make a trip to take care of some business in Canada, which showed me that living “in times of Corona virus” is not much different, no matter where you go. Here I am… back in front of my laptop, and instead of writing much here, I did a piece for Yucatan Expat Life. Read it at this link

I look forward to some easing of the precautions. But I hope we can keep our perspective and not surge again.

In Canada, I read this and I think it is an appropriate maxim for us all. wherever we are:

Be kind, be careful, be safe…
