I refuse to read every news article about the coronavirus that comes across my Facebook page. I am allergic to stress and don’t need to spend my time looking for things to stress about. That’s how I lived before the virus and that is how I want to live now.

Some of our activities have gone, but life (or at least mine) has not grinded to a halt. The world will keep spinning around the sun. One reason some people set an alarm is that they have faith that tomorrow will come…just like they did before a virus hit every news outlet.

Some things I still get to enjoy during this time:

Smell of coffee

Sound of birds outside

Hot showers and the smell of shampoo


Desert flowers

Sunrises and sunsets

Actually I enjoyed all of those before the world was put into lockdown mode. So I see no reason not to keep enjoying them now.
