So how is everyone doing right now ,today? I have seen the best and worst of people this week from the man in Poundland stuffing his basket full of facial wipes, to a group of youngsters in the town setting up a Facebook group to co-ordinate volunteers to do shopping. I’ve been impressed by enterprising people setting up ways to do home deliveries of local produce to a pottery workshop putting together home packs for children , also home delivered.
News of swans and dolphins appearing in the canals of Venice have cheered me no end. Cleaner air detected above cities. Nature seems to be striking back at the human race for its selfish and reckless behaviour.
Will lessons be learned? Will we have changed our ways?
Mr E and I are ok today. He still has health issues, but we’re under 70, so I run the minimum amount of errands I can ,to safegueard us both.
We are supposed to be moving in a couple of weeks. The boxes arrived on Monday. We have no idea if we will go, or if we can’t what the legal position is. I’ve given up asking as no-one knows the answer. But tonight we have a nice dinner, amazing what a lovely smell you get from onions, a tin of tomatoes, a tin of beans and the getting a bit manky veggies from last week. We are warm, my sons keep phoning me instead of the other way round, and I’m reaching out by phone and email to friends. Others have a much tougher time and I am very grateful for what I do have which is an abundance.
I go out in the garden, visit the frogs in the pond, look at the daffodils in full bloom, feel the rain on my face and give thanks.
So to everyone who reads this, I wish you all the very best and good health. We can take care of each other and afterwards make this a better planet.
