I am learning a new Format on this blog…you can’t see it, but it is how I compose this blog, and they, all of a sudden, changed it on me…so please, bear with me while I learn something new!
I learned patience while putting together a 1,000 piece difficult puzzle!!
I learned to open a door without touching it…this tool is so handy when using a public restroom, elevator and using touch pads in stores!!
I have learned to find the right time to social distant at the beach…
Taking a magical walk with Gina, Tom and boys…We learned to keep our social distance with our grandsons…even though we wanted to hug and kiss them!!
I learned how to grow vegetables from scraps!! I use scallions everyday, in my salads or cooking, so when we couldn’t go to the market during the surge, I decided to try growing some of my vegetables. I found online, that scallions can be grown from the ends that are leftover!! Simply, place the end with the roots in a glass of water and in about a week or two green shoots sprout up, like the photo on the right!! The shoots can be used in cooking or they can be planted, which I did…
I planted them in a pot, among my other herbs and vegetables. The scallions grow tall and green, simply cut and use them in your salads or cooking!!
This is our backyard garden, we planted all but the tomatoes in pots, because we found we have more control over animals eating them, by moving them around and placing them high on tables!!
But more importantly…
I have learned, from the Corona Virus spreading all over the world, from person to person, for standing up for “Black Lives Matter” all around the world, over the death of George Perry Floyd and countless other deaths of women and men of color…this is evidence that we are ALL connected, whether it is physically and/or something underlying connecting our hearts. If this is truly the case, let’s start treating each other with love and respect and listen and learn from others who are different, so that too will be spread all over the world. I’ve learned that it could starts with just one act of caring or kindness, it doesn’t have to be something big…
Like this 80 year old woman, Leta Austin Foster, who was the only one standing up for “Black Lives Matter,” in her town of Palm Beach!! The policeman gave her a citation for not drinking enough water, and gave her a cold bottle of water!!
Or by just wearing a face mask in public, to show people you care about their lives.
Let us listen and learn from people that are hurting, so that we will understand and help.
Deepak Chopra said, “If we learn the lessons of these difficult times, we will emerge in a healthier and happier world!!”
