Was She Referring To The Coronavirus Pandemic

Helen Keller passed away in 1968, more than 50 years ago, but today I read a quotation from her that made me think she knew it was coming.

How Long Will It Be?

Went out and swept the porch in the sunshine and fresh air. It felt so good. Then I used the wipes on all of the doorknobs inside and out all over the place. Now they are saying that everyone should be wearing a mask. I don't have any of them. I will have to dig out my cowboy-type red bandanna and... Sign in to see full entry.

Something Different For Me

I had never had a Doctor's appointment by telephone before. If it were not for our State of Missouri having a Shelter-at-Home order for several weeks now due to coronavirus, I would not have had this one.

It Just Gets More Insane Every Day

Today at our apartment complex notes were fastened to each door giving instructions about showing up at the office for anything in the coming weeks. Until now everyone has been encouraged to be neighborly, visit often, sit in the lounge, have coffee and cookies, they even had an Easter waffle... Sign in to see full entry.

The Changing of The Watch

The first day of Spring is here. "The time of the singing of birds has come" The greening of the grass hastened to meet the date and the maple tree in front of my window is covered with little bitty red flowers that soon will turn into little "helicopters" and fill the air with their unique...

Putting Self-Isolation To Good Use

For a hundred years it seems, though in reality perhaps a quarter of that, I've had in my possession two sturdy white oak book shelves that reach high above my head, each six shelves tall plus space at the top for a conglomeration added through the years. Long ago I gave up knowing where things were... Sign in to see full entry.
