Everywhere I walked I was deliberately stopped for you see others, desperate for conversation, wanted to talk to me. Not one person that day had mask or gloves on. Now if you are out and about taking a walk in a park, all you have to do is have binocs around your neck and voila(!) people magically come from far and near to talk to you! For the JOY!!
Even an Erie County Parks Ranger while driving a pickup truck, when abreast from me, stopped and rolled down her window to talk to me. Her grin lit up the sky for being so happy for the joy of talking! People need to connect to other people and believe me, the stirrings of heart-to heart conversation have commenced!
People so desperate for something they took for granted all their life no longer do. We’ve been starved for attention, starved for smiles and conversations, starved for interaction, starved for just being with others outside of family. Closeness in family is a good thing, yet too much of a good thing is not a good thing. I don’t know about you all but I’m about ready to crawl the walls with this continued “lockdown”.
I encourage all of you to keep doing whatever it takes to keep your sanity and a big smile on your smile. I know what works for me. You better believe I do those very things especially now of all times.
If you have begun to ask questions about our current affairs, or someone who is an independent thinker, I’ve included with this post a link my sister sent to me you can use to help answer your questions. I believe we all have the right to make our own decisions after assessing any subject matter, inclusive of our current circumstances. We are entitled to live by our own truth.

CAUGHT AGAIN BY HUBBY
*Yes it has been chilly here at times. Hence the huge flannel shirt.*
Will any of you ever again take our basic God-given freedoms for granted once lockdown is finally and I mean finally lifted from the entire world?
