It’s how we grow

I wrote about consistency in my blog a while back and I’m not sure I will ever have that consistency that makes me recognize my work, but I sure am having fun. I waited far too long to play around in Photoshop and now that I’m there, I’m discovering so many new things. I’d like to think that as long as I’m alive I will embrace learning new things. I might not always like change, but that’s how we grow, isn’t it? Things in the real world have certainly changed quite a bit and I’ll admit I’m scared. I have too many friends with auto immune diseases, not to mention other things like asthma, kidney disease, etc. I hope that everyone is doing their part to flatten the curve. I joke about how I’ve been social distancing for years, but this is actually quite serious. I guess I’m lucky that I rarely leave my house anyway, but others are not quite so blessed. There are so many out there that simply do not have the option of staying home. Please be mindful of one another during this time. It seems we will all have to grow from this. ♥

Feet on the Ground

Sometimes with all the craziness that’s going on around me, I just need to look down and remember to keep my feet on the ground. I know it sounds silly, but as I practice mindfulness sometimes it helps to have that visual. Just to see this is where I am right now. I’m not in the past where things are over and done. I’m not in a future that I cannot see or accurately predict. I am right here, right now, and I need to focus on just that.

The Cafe

A little over a week ago, I started this morning routine of sitting at the cafe working on my laptop while I check blogs, publish a post, read emails, and process my morning to do list for the various jobs I have. Oh, I’m not leaving my house, this is all done in Second Life and the cafe is Burrow Coffee Co. It’s a great place to people watch, too. There’s not a ton of traffic, but the people that wander in are interesting to say the least. Most are friendly enough without being intrusive. The regulars nod to one another and go on with their routine of waking up. I’m fortunate enough to know the owner, Harlow Heslop, and she’s been so kind to let me have my own little area to set up each morning. So, if you’re ever in the mood for a place to chill, listen to music, and people watch, I  hope you’ll check it out.

Scars are souvenirs

Scars are souvenirs you never lose
The past is never far
Did you lose yourself somewhere out there?
Did you get to be a star?
And don’t it make you sad to know that life
Is more than who we are?

Stay Safe

I haven’t talked about the Corona Virus on my blog much, because I feel like everyone is dealing with it across the globe in a variety of ways. I can’t speak for people in other countries or even in other parts of my own. What I see locally scares me to absolutely no end. People in my neck of the woods are carrying on as if nothing has happened. While a few businesses have closed down and schools have shut their doors, the bulk of my area is carrying on as if nothing has happened. Some people are even quite belligerent in their protests of the places that have closed. I have no doubt that the virus will wash over this area like a tsunami within a week and THAT scares the crap out of me. I just want everyone to stay safe and do their part in reducing the curve.

Making Room for Pizza

They had moved to the big city with dreams of an exciting nightlife. No one had ever anticipated being locked down over a pandemic. These two had been friends their entire lives and had been through all sorts of heart aches, but nothing had compared to this.

As Sady finished off another donut, she rubbed her tummy and sighed, “Thank God workout clothes are stretchy!”

Stef lifted her leg to let another one rip across the room, “OMG! Right!?!?”

Sady scrunched her nose and laughed, “I should try that, maybe I’d have room for more pizza!”

Stef laughed, “You weren’t supposed to hear that!”

Sady gave her a look, “I heard it, smelled it, and watched you lift your leg like a dog to let it out!”

It was right then, that their little Yorkie, Puddin, let out an outrageously disgusting little fart of her own. I guess she’s making room for pizza, too.
