Reflections

We live in a "Shelter in Place" state so it provides a lot of time for reflection.  Today we woke up to snow falling but earlier this week there was an opportunity to get some fresh air.  We are asked to not leave the house except for essential services and to exercise in a way that you do not come in close contact with  others.  It is surreal...if by chance you see another person on a walk one of you will cross to the opposite side of the road.  My little tourist town knows what is at stake and everyone here is doing their best to flatten that curve.  There have been past events that have shown us what happens when people cannot come visit, whether it be an avalanche that blocks the mountain pass or forest fire.  So we as a collective know what to do...but, this...well this is a whole different event and I pray for my family, friends, strangers...for it is not just about us but the world.

When G and I walked out the door we were greeted with a message...SMILE!  Some little angel left us a gift and it certainly did make us smile :)



Although crisp, it was a beautiful walk
 and
 even the geese were taking social distancing  to heart!


On our walk we found messages here and there
 and
 I am grateful for the kindness of people.


I thought I would leave you with this photo of the most stunning project that was hanging in the Stitchin Post the last time I was able to go inside.  Although the store front is closed you can still mail order.  If it is not on their website you can call them.  Valori is a one woman shop now and is answering the phones in the morning.



Be Safe, Stay Inside and Stitch

  1. Anna, I'm enjoying your uplifting posts. Thanks.

    With your nursing background, do you have a decent guess as to how long the U.S. will have to socially isolate? If EVERYONE complied, could we go back to a careful normal by May 1st?

    1. I am thinking not because there are still so many who are not playing by the same rules...I still have friends who are going out...but, I pray that we will...some people much smarter than me say...September. That means a whole lot more finished UFO's!!!

  2. What fun to find those messages along the way today. Debbie St. Germain paints rocks and leaves them for people and children to find.

    Today I’m going to walk along the quay. We had some rain the past two days so I didn’t get out. I don’t like wearing hoods but want to take pictures which is hard to do with a camera.
