On this beautiful day…

March 27, 2020

As I escaped my hunker-down today and walked in the fresh breeze in my neighborhood. I watched children play and old folks walk their dogs and it was hard to imagine that there was any threat. I heard a knock, knock, knock from a nearby tree and went closer only to discover a woodpecker totally oblivious to my presence, grateful to observe someone productively at work. I also saw delivery vans from the major companies on their routes and thought of how the drivers have been berated in the past when a parcel landed unceremoniously somewhere close to my front door. Today, I say a silent prayer for all the folks deemed essential who cannot hunker down. I pray that I am using my hunker-down time wisely and with thoughts towards healing. I admire the dandelion that reaches for the sun without thought for contagion only the instinct to keep growing. Thank you friends around the globe who have let me know you are okay, I hope you are enjoying some fresh, clean air (a byproduct of millions of people hunkering down) on this beautiful day.
