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.

@johnbishop, Hadn’t known that multiple responses in one post might “miss” members on another thread. Just want you to know how much I enjoy yours and others photos. So excited to report that my 1st male hummer appeared yesterday sipping from the larkspur!

Thanks @fiesty76, members probably won't see a post unless they have chosen to follow a discussion by clicking on the + Follow link at the top of the discussion or have been specifically tagged with their @membername. I love humming birds and see them occasionally but it's usually on my wife's flowers in the front yard and not near my feeder.

@zeiracorp LIke the pictures especially the blue jay out here they are colored blue but not like the eastern jay. When my husband put our garden to sleep for the winter I cut the heads of the sunflowers and they loved to pick out the seeds from them it was quite a sit seeing all those jays on the ground

Love those kitty eyes! @zeiracorp Looks a lot like my kitty 🙂

I think everyone may find this musical rendition of Stand By Me a nice distraction during this time of isolation:

Stunningly beautiful. Thanks so very much.

Lovely black and white pics and laughing that your legs are still attached! Thanks for the needed humor.

@johnbishop, Thanks for understanding. This olde gal is "willing" but she seems slower and more easily confused about everything these days. Smiles. So if I add notes to @zeiracorp for her black & white pics and you for your latest, you both will see the post??? However, if I add a note to someone in the walking grp who doesn't follow this thread, they won't see my response to them?
