The human creature is a social animal and will derive companionship of soul from the unlikeliest sources. It will be fed by even the hint of a smile or twinkle of the eye from a passerby where no more vital companionship food is to be had.

Being home for the pandemic has made our local community
message board very active. Some posts have made me wonder why people are so awful, but there have been plenty of useful and even charming ones. People have enthusiastically embraced the Bear Hunt
trend and our Pink Unicorn.
Someone requested doing a jigsaw puzzle trade and got lots of takers (we left two on our stoop and received two). The Little Free Library owner down the street is trading homegrown seedlings for donations for our local food pantry.
A post that asked "What have you enjoyed during COVID19?" got dozens of replies: more time with family, improved traffic, baking, and gardening, for instance. One thing that was mentioned by a number of people is now much they liked finding kindness rocks
on their daily walks. That prompted me to paint several rocks.
I'm taking a break from being regular with my posts, as you might have noticed :-) My daughter Ariana
is starting a new medicine
and that is enough scheduled activity for now.
