Palm trees, puffy clouds, coronavirus isolation

The picture is really kind of pretty. Those green fronds of the palm trees starkly contrast with the white and blue hues in the sky. But what does that have to do with COVID-19 isolation? Nothing.

So much is happening in the country, the world, our state and our street. No, I take that back, very little is happening on our street. But the country? We got our stimulus money from the IRS. Trump put up a campaign ad disguised as a “briefing” in one of his press conferences. He backed down a little from his “I have total authority” statements. But those statements really tell a lot about who Trump thinks he is. Have you noticed that he likes to cut off reporters before they can even finish their questions? And in some cases he then yells at them because the question they want to ask might put Trump in a bad light. And don’t get me started on Trump’s asinine use of Twitter.

When is our isolation going to end? As one who has  a list of those underlying health concerns I am really hesitant to think about soon returning to a “normal” life out and about. Until they (whoever they are) can come up with an effective treatment or an effective vaccine I am not sure when Sher and I will feel comfortable or safe going out. It will be interesting to see what conditions state or federal governments will need to see prior to “opening for business”.

Thanks for allowing me to “rant” a bit and share the frustrations that so many of us are feeling right now. I just hope that as soon as possible we can all get back into the new normal, whatever that turns out to be.

  1. I was so riled up during and after Wednesday’s press briefing, I decided to take a media free holiday. No news is of any kind is allowed. Have a great day. This all may take longer (not sooner) than any one thought, but one day it will be in our rear view mirrors. Stay safe.

  2. The image is really lovely. I miss roaming free under the blue sky. These days, the front door feels like an impenetrable wall.

    Well, anywa… Stay safe and have a wonderful day. 🙂

  3. The comment on the presidential “coronavirus briefings” was particularly apt. I noticed that since he cannot hold campaign rallies he is essentially holding campaign briefings under the disguise of health and safety
