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.

For all of us who deal with stress by attending exercise classes, I thought you might find these websites and apps helpful.

The first one is from the YMCA and has various exercise classes that you can participate in at home. Here is the link, https://ymca360.org/

The second one is from the New York Post with a list of apps. Here is the link for that, https://nypost.com/2020/03/13/the-7-best-at-home-fitness-apps-to-use-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/

How are you exercising during this time of seclusion?

Photo taken by a friend of mine who recently moved to Soldotna area of Alaska. I think it was near the dump where it was taken. Never seen so many Eagles in one tree.

Incredible, John!

Good afternoon everyone and @johnbishop. I don't think we have had any predators in this discussion. However, these two eagles are fighting between themselves over the red fish that is in the water on the right. I don't know if they had already done the spring mating dance…..but they should have gone to counseling first.
May there be contentment and ease for you today.

Hi @artscaping I believe you managed to repost 61valiant’s (@user_ch32491d1) photo originally posted earlier in this discussion. It is a stunning photo. What luck to witness this in person.

Really a great shot of the Bald Eagle @zeiracorp. Looks like he's sizing you up 🙂

Well, I have gotten any bird pictures yet, but here are a couple of our trip along the Rhine River in France and Germany. We were stationed in this area of Germany when Mike was in the army many years ago. And Holland also!

Trying out a new free photo collage program Adobe Spark…free version gives you the yucky watermark but hey, that's what happens when you are cheap like me. I'm anxiously awaiting June and July as that's when my Ditch Lilies start blooming.

Simply breathtaking! And so fitting to be taken in Soldotna. Alaska is truly our country's last frontier. Hugs for this!
