I hope the my readers are aware of what has been going on in Society. All I can say is that an African-American Woman, if has had a powerful effect on me. But Friday a lovely thing occurred. I found the Stone and Note on my Door Step:
This was great to find after I discovered a disappointment at the Park on Friday. First the Rock Tribute to Victims of COVID:
We had captured a Black Lives Matter Stone, placed there, we thought, because of how much harder the African American Community has been hit by COVID:
Last Friday this had been removed by someone who felt threatened and hateful. But later that evening I found this Stone of Hope on my doorstep from a neighbor:
No Palms for Palm Sunday, but something to think about during our time of social distancing……..I recently read the Alyssa Chiarello article “5 Photo Books for the Quarantine Life“, as recommended by Jim Grey. Social Distancing does not mean that you never go out unless your goal is to go crazy!
And so I have been inspired by Alyssa to go out and document what life has become under these quarantine conditions. And as she suggests, look back at those photos in a few years and see what is different. I decided to start with photos of my current state of being, AND the often called for Masks…….These are leftover from my days as a geochemist when I was processing rock samples for analysis. Seems like they’ve found a new use.
It is also important to remember that “stay-at-home” does not mean that you lock yourself up at home. It means maintain proper social distancing when you do have to go out. The need to go out includes getting some fresh air at the local parks, or taking a safe ride in the country.
