I am really behind in posting at the moment and while I intended to start posting as normal today, I was struck by some of the positive posts of others on the dreaded virus, so just wanted to share the links.
I have to confess I am finding the mixed messaging we have been getting a bit alarming. Yesterday for the first time since the crisis started I found myself feeling something approaching genuine alarm, reason thankfully returns rapidly.
A couple of positive observations:
Panic happens when we are thinking only of ourselves, but things are a lot less stressfull if you start thinking of how you can help others.
I suspect the virus has caused a positive impact on the environment, lowering carbon emissions, China has cleaner air as a result of the forced shut down, so not all bad news.
The world has never had cleaner hands, lets hope we all keep up the good habits.
Personally, if I am forced to stay home it gives me an opportunity to catch up on reading and that is a good thing.
This morning I read a couple of positive posts from other bloggers so just wanted to share the links, firstly to The Alchemist’s Studio and B-B-B-BYE CORONA – SELF CARE IN THE TIME OF PANDEMIC, now I can’t hear covid 19 and not think “come on Eileen”, remember Dexy’s Midnight Runners. That blast from the past has just become my earworm of the day.
The other post I wanted to share a link to is the ever sensible Ian at Shojiwax, take a moment and just chill: Yarram and a coronavirus update
And now for just a happy dog picture. Life is good, enjoy it!
