There is so much that has transpired in all of our worlds, in such a very short period of time. I feel most of you might feel as I do presently—how will our world be going forward?
Not a single person has that definitive answer, unfortunately. What I do know is this though, I am so very fortunate in so many ways. My heart goes out to the families waiting in line at the local foodbanks, waiting to feed their families. Or to those living in parts of the world that are so marginalized. Sadly, these individuals and countries will suffer greatly in the long run.
I’ve also come to realize, at a time like this, it’s your family and your families of choice, that provide you the connection and love we all need during times like these. I am so thankful for having both, to help me manage through this time in our worlds. Life will be different going forward, definitely. Thank you to those of you, who have been there for me, when I reached out, needing to hear a familiar voice or just see your faces.
I will close with this video I came across the other day of a poem that is inspiring and timeless, even now in my opinion. It’s called “Desiderata” by Max Erhmann, an American writer 1872-1945.
I used to have a poster of the poem in my bedroom, growing up in Louisiana. It inspired me then and gave me some inspiration, when I saw it the other day.
Take care. Be safe—stay well!

That was lovely just as all your blogs that I have enjoyed reading are. Please continue your writing and travel safely.
Thanks so much, Sylvia. I hope you have a lovely Mother’s Day today with your family. I’ll be heading back to Austin today.
