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.

@rwinney, These are awesome!! Especially the fourth with the tiny perfect raindrop perched on the tip of the stamen/pistol? Only nature and a talented photographer could capture this refreshing beauty!

I'll get us started. Here's a picture I snapped in our driveway last Summer. I live on the side of a small hill. The other side of the hill is a flat area next to a small river. Had I not been observant I possibly could have driven over the small guy. Can you guess what kind? My guess is a baby snapping turtle. Even though we had a ton of rain around the time I took the photo, I have no idea how that baby turtle got over the hill and down to my driveway. I carefully picked the little guy up and walked him back over the hill down by the river then set him free.

How about you, anything you would like to share? I need some cheer, otherwise it's back to the boob tube to find a good comedy.
