Same Storm – Different Boat ?

OK friends & family! …. I’m posting my first blog of this year since my last post December 21, 2019. So this is my 10th blog since I started Momfoo.com January 27, 2019!

I originally planned on writing & posting when my boss was scheduled to start shooting his feature film in Canada on March 16th. A whirlwind of pre-production activities for both his movie and his Big 3 Basketball League was underway and I knew once he was on his Canadian 39 day shoot, I would have plenty of time to write. But no, the world halted & our doors closed on Sunday March 15, when our Governor announced “Voluntary Self-Isolation”.

MARCH 15, 2020 “Gov. Gavin Newsom asked Californians over the age of 65 on Sunday to isolate themselves from others and said that neighborhood bars and pubs should close their doors as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the state continue to rise. To this date the numbers in the United States”

Forty-eight days later, we have all become proficient and fashionable in mask & glove wearing, hand washing with real bar soap, Zoom calls, Lysol spraying and binge watching. Special early senior hours are now close to being elite and mask patrolling and shaming is the norm. We all have a new appreciation for “first responders” (our field Lieutenants), hairdressers, all service people, teachers, schools and dancers & singers who can tape award shows, and concerts from their laptops at home. And special thanks to those who love emailing and posting quarantine jokes and videos to lighten our spirits.

 

It’s been a major learning curve for us all and although we earthlings who inhabit this beautiful planet are all experiencing the same Storm, we are not all in the same Boat.   Please count your blessings and let’s all release wider broadband compassion for the other boats surviving this storm ….. love & Light  Nancy (Momfoo)
