One of the things I’ve been impressed with during this corona-crisis is the resilience of people and what they have done during this time. No, most of us haven’t learned to speak Italian or Spanish, but many people have found interesting things to do. Some of my neighbors are rediscovering old hobbies or dusting off cookbooks and getting reacquainted with their kitchens. Monte was writing the other day about replacing the coffee shop routine with visits to the countryside in the early morning or late evening. Earl and Cedric have been revisiting old photographs – sometimes finding lost photos filed in the wrong folder! – and reworking them to make new art.
Of course there are downsides, but I try to not dwell on those.

Actually, my life has not changed much at all. I just came from Earl’s blog where I mentioned how small the impact of this pandemic has been on me where my day-to-day life is concerned. I have continued to work as I have for the past couple of years with the added bonus of having an excuse for staying home and not being forced to go out anywhere, which is what my wife likes to do. She dislikes staying home with passion. But finding that image wrongly placed in my folders, was a nice thing to happen, but I think it had more to do with me filing away some receipts than as a direct result of the lock-down situation. Even with all the extra time available, I have continued to stay decidedly and happily boring 🙂
There is a lot to be said for being happily bored! I think the key is to have a positive attitude, be open to whatever comes along and try to make the best of the situation. Thanks for the comments!
Actually, I don’t think I’ve been bored since I was a child but I do get called boring by many including my wife 🙂
But my kids get me 😉
I also found a good coffee bean for my french press because of the loss for the coffee shops. Good things are coming from this weird situation.
I’ve resorted lately to buying Peet’s Coffee beans from the grocery store, but just recently hooked up with a local guy – that I’ve actually known for years – that roasts his own beans. Once I get them and try them out I’ll let you know how it goes.
