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.

Update on Magz. She is growing every day and my daughter recently taught her to fetch. It was a rainy day here in JAX, so they had a game of catch and return in the Florida Room.

@zeiracorp, Oh my goodness, Z, this all opened after our visit but how much fun to see that my frugal forebears looked to make some coin by building it into a visitors' site. Honestly, glad to have been there when we were though because if wasn't touristy but hauntingly still and mysterious. Thank you so much for sharing the link…what a memory starter for the day! An across-the-street neighbor grew up in Scotland and moved here 10 yrs ago. I so enjoy listening to her talk; she is a grand and humorous story teller.

PERSEID METEOR ALERT:
Earth is entering a stream of debris from giant comet 109P/Swift-Tuttle, source of the annual Perseid meteor shower.
Although the display is not expected to peak until August 11-13, sky watchers are already seeing some of the most beautiful fireballs of the year.

Today my sister sent me a picture of one of her new kittens. They are not related except being raised in same foster home. Typical of kittens, what one doesn't think of, the other one does. Here, Charlie got between screen and sliding door, confused what to do next!
