Leisure is one thing I’m feeling the lack of lately. Most of my leisure activities, you see, involve traveling. As in, long distance traveling. One of my absolute favorite leisure activities is staying on a little stretch of beach near Kapaa on the Island of Kauai in Hawaii. There each morning we rise early to watch the awakening of the day. We stand and soak in the glorious ambience of sun and sea.

Linda says: ”Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.
Our Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt is “welcome.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!
Kind of a mish/mash up for me today
Coping with COVID-19 — day 2 — March 21, 2020
It’s a beautiful day here in the Black Hills. Sunshine, blue skies, mild temps. It’s a welcome relief from the snow, freezing temps, and winds earlier this week. We have a large lovely, lightly populated area perfect for walking with minimal human interaction. We’ve been out for one walk already and plan to do one or two more. We’re both recovering from a mild virus and we’re still a little weak. It’s nothing more than sniffles, itchy eyes and a mild cough but right now a cough is about as welcome as a fox in the hen house.
If I’m honest about it, I’m kind of relieved to be home for a couple of weeks. I’m a Highly Sensitive Person and an introvert. Too much “peopling” can leave me exhausted under the best of circumstances and these, my friends are NOT the best of circumstances. Angry, frightened aura’s abound.
There has also not been much of an opportunity to celebrate the Equinox or Ostara which I always enjoy. I like to welcome Spring with a cleansed home and some special spring treats. This afternoon will be spent in an outdoor meditation, a “whole house blessing” (a fancy schmancy way of saying Spring Cleaning), and perhaps some nice vegetable soup.

So having had my business trip pulled out from under me, I’ve decided to makes some different plans, sounds like vacation time to me. 😉 “Good times, riches, and son of a B****s, I’ve seen more than I can recall.”
A stone lantern stands a lonely sentinel silently lighting the path
for wayward travelers, pilgrims and seekers rich with moss and the patina of ages how long has it guarded this woodland path and who lights it?
First of all, let me apologize. I truly meant to keep this challenge up every week. Unfortunately, surgery, pain meds, and well … sleep have interfered. Bare with me while I catch up Week 3 of 2020 picoftheweek from Maria Antonia my prompt is: Greenery

White clouds float across a panorama of blue sky not azure, nor sapphire no ethereal wisp of fog no misty angel wings just blue and white like an unfinished masterpiece too often taken for granted magic in it’s ordinariness
