Visual Escapes and Daily Inspirations: Share Yours

Posted by John, Volunteer Mentor @johnbishop, Mar 16, 2020

Let's create a space to offer a daily reprieve.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought a lot of uncertainty and fear into our lives. Some of that fear and uncertainty can be caused by over thinking what is going on or unnecessarily worrying. So, I'm making sure I wash my hands frequently, not touching my face, staying away from social gatherings and all of the recommended guidelines to help avoid getting or spreading COVID-19 but it can be a little boring. I try to not watch news all day long while I'm in this self imposed captivity. I like to take pictures of birds and other creatures from my window as a welcome break.

I invite you to join me in sharing pictures, favorite poems, sayings, mottos, funny moments. Let's take a daily break together.

This was a picture we took in Hawaii in November 2019. And one of my favorite quotes is from my dad who passed away almost 3 yrs ago. " This to shall pass "

We live near a river in Maryland. About a year ago, I saw an eagle eating a fish (fish is near the water's edge on the right). All of a sudden, another eagle swooped in……"Food Fight"!

Haha re: the cat pic! I grew up with a dog, but early in our marriage we were so busy, so we’ve had 3 sets of cats and have loved it! One was named Edward; fat and spoiled rotten. He looked like an old man when he sat upright in an arm chair. All he needed was a pipe and slippers! 😉

And this one, Sue, is my all time favorite which I've shared with my beloved friend, mentioned above. Thank you for sharing it today; this is an incomprehensibly difficult time for all who love her and this was the lift much needed and appreciated right now because some days are just more difficult than others. Thank you.

One of my all time favorite birds – took this photo earlier this year. Every time I have a visit by one of these guys it feels special.

Yesterday morning while taking a walk. I was greeted by the sounds of a redwinged blackbird. I was about to take a picture using my iphone – but he flew away.
I love all of these delightful pictures that everyone is sharing ❤

I like this photo. I only take snapshots with my phone, but I do take a number along the way. I am a widow and live with Wally my little Shizue (spelling?). We live in a retirement community. I create greeting cards and paint rocks for a hobby. 🙂 . Also make Fairy Lanterns.
