Today, April 25, 2020, is a very special day for two very special people.  Even though the big wedding has to be postponed during the pandemic, people who ought to be married can still get married - if we are careful and thoughtful about it.  Happy Elopement Day to Victoria and William! Let's do it again in August.

This Is This

One thing I'm hearing over and over during this time of harboring in place (ie. lockdown & curfew) is that people are losing track of the days.  The struggle is real!  Is it Monday? Saturday? The 7th? The 12th?

This Is This

As we sit at the table recording today's episode, there's a flock of seagulls next door at the Food Lion.  They've been "vocal" for several days now.  What gives? Also, have the doldrums? Could the game of chess be the answer?

Today's reading from Mr. Rogers is about how it's okay to take your time.  One thing we all have right now, as we are practicing social isolation in our homes, is TIME.  How do you want to spend it?

We're in the second week of social distancing (i.e. not leaving home at all!) and today we were kind of bored.  There's a lull.  The doldrums.

This Is This

Have you had a chance to listen to, or watch, any of the free performances of music or theater during your social distancing? I'm trying to soak in all that I can.  I've always said it, and now I really believe it: the Arts will save our spirits.

Kristen and David had an unexpected hiatus from THIS IS THIS.  Apologies!!!  Life got the better of us, schedules were bananas, and Kristen had the world's worst cold.  Blech. No one needed to hear that up close and personal.

We're in the second week of social distancing (i.e. not leaving home at all!) and today we were kind of bored.  There's a lull.  The doldrums.

What a fine time, during this void of activity, to think about what we feel and who we are!  Mr. Rogers thinks that truth will make us free!  What a rich gift this can be.
