Promises of Better Days Ahead

Day 27 of My 30 Days of Creativity Challenge.

It rained all night where I am, and we had wind gusts of I would guess 40mph. Our power has been out since last night around 2330, and it’s been out ALL day now. It’s been a quiet day for my little family and I – we’ve been reading, doing puzzles, and just being together.

I think about how everyone talks about “Social Distancing” these days. 6 feet apart, blah, blah, blah. What we want is not “social” distance, we want actual PHYSICAL distance. We need our social circles, we need connection, but it’s the physical distance we should be striving for.

Check up on your people. Check your friends, your elderly parents. Socially, this isolation has been crazy and many are not able to handle it. It takes a few moments to send a text, or better to make a call so they can hear a voice. With technology we can even FaceTime or Zoom with each other. Make it a point to check up on each other. Our mental health is as important as our physical health, especially in this time of “Physical Distancing.”

My little painting today reminds me of the little rainbow shimmers that are brought on by and left after a good rain storm. Little promises of better days, better times to come. Believe in that!
