Living in a Pandemic

This is me, in my new go-to fashion accessory.  Of course, that insinuates that I have actually left the house recently, which I haven’t.  I am chronically ill with a chronically ill 18-year-old, so aside from an appropriately socially distanced neighborhood walk or two, I haven’t been anywhere since March 14th.

I have been trying to use both Brave and Reckless and my Facebook feed to give others a safe space, an outlet, for the multitude of feelings we have been experiencing as we negotiate our new normal.  I thought that today I would share some of the links that I have found particularly helpful in negotiating life in the age of coronavirus.

Don’t be surprised if I start posting daily questions for you to answer.  Staying connected to others helps me retain my own humanity and sanity.

Wishing you and your loved one health, safety, and peace.

  1. Great list. And my old Aunty Wendy lives in that Welsh village being invaded by goats- she keeps posting photos of them napping in the sun on the village green, and loitering in the middle of the road!
