Green growing plants, pretty pictures of faraway places, exploring and listening to new music, and reading books with a tropical setting have been getting me though this horrible time. I donned my mask and went out to get a couple of house plants to add to the lonely jade plant in my kitchen window. I came home with a peace plant that blooms white flowers, a Swiss cheese plant – very trendy, a snake plant, a corn plant, a pin cushion, and a 9 foot tall fig tree!

I have also been obsessively adding pictures to my camera roll of beautiful cafes around the world. I have been longing to sit in one in a cafe, restaurant or club and engage in a little small talk with other patrons, or just watch the world go by.  I’m dreaming of the day that I can make and fulfill real future plans.

I was nervous about the vaccine and started to read everything I could to set my mind at ease. I came across an article by Bill Gates and after reading it I’m rolling up my sleeve at the first opportunity, so I can watch the world go by.

Sending loving thoughts to all,
