Just what we need

Bouquet of lilacs of varying colors including light blue, purple and a combination of white and pink
Remembering Lilacs
To say we live in perilous times is an understatement. There have never been such horrific events happening in the age of technology. We made the supposition that we are in a state of invulnerability, thanks to this age of science and research world-round in our mutual lifetimes. The timeline of tragedies can be pinned on a map. This map will now a deep black hole burned into it. 

Depression and anxiety are like a seeping gas. When it starts to get to me, I seek that which can fill me with peace.

Seeing such love, talent, and joy between Daddy and daughter, well, is 
just what I need, what we need.

  4. These are indeed difficult times.

    That is a good poem and good advice. Though I have been working from home, I have been working so many hours that I have not really noticed the isolation part yet,

    Stay safe.

  7. I try to do the same, Susan. With varied results! But it is so important that we do everything we can to keep our stress down. We all have a lot of very good reasons NOT to get sick! Stay well.
