around here/physical distancing

yesterday i thought about how the term “social distancing” should be replaced with “physical distancing”

i find that in a way, people are more social than ever before because they finally have the time to be

when i checked in on my girlfriend Connie who lives in los angeles, she told me that online dating is on its peak out there

i see through instagram and facebook that people are more present on there than ever before

and i think in a way, that is a little silver lining to all of this

like so many who are fortunate enough to have food, a comfortable home, good health, the right finances…. we are counting our blessings and trying to find our own silver lining in all of this

for me, it has been waking up naturally with the sunrise again

to create more art

to enjoy having Lilian home all day

to go on nature walks and be thankful for all the open space we have around us

to cook simpler meals

to enjoy and be thankful for our home. all of it

hope you are all well friends

despite everything, i am happy it’s spring

have done some foraging and keep bringing spring inside

slower and later mornings

i keep creating art

i also keep saging the house. not only is sage a great spiritual cleanser, it is also great for purifying your home by getting rid of germs and bacteria

watering day

open window weather

we’ve been having such beautiful spring weather that we have been able to have a handful of meals out here already

and although i know it is way too early, i want to fill this space with all the green babies!

an afternoon dog walk and a puddle reflection

trying to support local businesses

music! it is always playing in our home. now more than ever. the alex cameron pandora station has been a favorite of mine for months now
