Welcome LiveAloners And Everyone
Well, here I am again. It is now October 07, 2020, and peonies in the flower border are long gone. And the roses are now just a few hardy souls hanging on.
Living alone means being so much aware of your surroundings, both inside and especially out. And I've always loved Fall the best.
Fall means that school starts up again meaning a new beginning inside, despite saying goodbye to blooming time outside.
But the oak trees' sudden reds and golds do make up for summer's loss. And another year goes through its seasonal changes, a routine that keeps our souls centered no matter what else is going on in the world.
And this year of 2020, too much is going on that threatens our serenity and our health. This virus pandemic is changing much of what we maybe took for granted. Our health, our economy, our belief that the best is yet to come.
It is to be hoped that something worth remembering might come from all the deaths and family sorrow. Maybe a little more compassion for each other.
A greater understanding of how small our differences are compared to our similarities. Our sharing of how important the ties of family have become.
This is not the first time that our nation has faced a health trauma. And we have survived to keep on keeping on. That's what we will do again.
We mere humans keep going on, doing the best we can just the same way that the natural world around us keeps going through its seasons, dying down to Winter sleep to awaken, once again, in Spring's gold and green.
We can only hope to awaken after this viral pandemic has worn off to be better people, kinder souls more willing to understand, negotiate, and share.
I pray that we do.
