I don’t know about you, but with even more time for people to be on Facebook, I find that FB friends are passing along helpful and thoughtful “posters” to help deal with self-isolation, to understand why it’s so critically important, as well as announcing new closures. You may have seen some or all of these, but I thought they were worth passing along. They’ve helped me.
Things to be grateful for.
Things for praying.
Things for ways to be helpful. You may want to consider starting or being part of a caremongering Facebook group in your community. This is a social movement that is spreading across Canada, with people setting up virtual caremongering (instead of scaremongering!) groups to organize help for vulnerable people in their communities who can’t – or shouldn’t – get out. It started in Toronto and spread from there. Here is a link to an early story about this movement, published on the BBC website: Coronavirus: Kind Canadians start ‘caremongering’ trend.
And finally, for those of you who are wondering what happened to Wildlife Wednesday, I share a picture I just took out our back window of some of our crow friends enjoying some scraps we threw out for them. The pair of ducks who showed up for the first time (a sign that the river is starting to break up) were too quick for my camera, but they were fun to see waddling in the snow. Now you know what nearly spring is like in our beautiful neck of the woods!
Stay safe. Stay well. Stay sane.
