This is a time in history for changes in thought and action. With the coronavirus’ invisible attacks on the world, including ours, we are forced to shift gears—our normal isn’t normal anymore. Newscasters are working from home and seldom reporting politics—refreshing. Coronavirus has permeated everyday life even if we are healthy.
Like most people, I am making the best of being homebound. Plus, I can stay away from people and still ride my bike and go for a walk. I have food, shelves of books, art supplies, and of course, my trusted computer for writing. I have been collecting rocks, and yesterday, I decided to paint them and place them about during my walks. They are no Rembrandts, were never intended to be, just fun and creative. I hope they bring a smile to their discoverers.
I found, the more I painted the better they looked. Practice might not make perfect, but it does lead to improvement. I started with fourteen rocks and finished seven on the first day. (Three, very small) I’m writing this after rock #9. Rocks, paint, Hallmark movies, and a refreshing beverage—who said staying home is boring?
