Safe at Home

Every day, I remind myself....

When I'm resenting the constraints on my life right now and longing for a return to normalcy, I try my best to focus on the ways in which this enforced isolation has been a force for good in my life. The list of positives is long. I've had time to...

    be with my husband



    create new classes


    watch a new series

    talk with friends on the phone

    go for long walks in the spring sunshine


    enjoy not having a schedule

    learn new skills

    take a class & be a student, rather than the teacher

    make plans for the future

    take a deep breath and just be

The constant pressure to do and go no longer exists.

I suspect that years from now, I may even look back on this time with a sort of nostalgia. I hope you, my friends, are finding some beauty and joy in each day, too.

There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. 
Jane Austen
