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.

Oh, my goodness, Z@zeiracorp, What a find! Beautiful additon to your home.

Just in case anyone was curious about the newest member of our family (the puppy, not my kids :)). Meet Maggie, our mini bully terrier mix!

On the subject of olives, I love the Spanish olives with pimento but also love kalamata olives too. Yum!

I love these wlld flowers in the woods between my house and my neighbors. If they weren't on his side of the property line, I would be digging up a few to transplant them next to the side of the road where it's too steep to mow. I think these are Scarlet Bee Balm plants. I think they would be nice along with some transplanted Daylilies.

@lioness when I used to have a cocktail or two, I love olives in my martinis. As I mature, I can't tolerate alcohol anymore. So, no more olives.

John- They are bee balm. They grow like weeds too. Ask your neighbor for a few!
