Closed, closed, closed, closed -- open

In a park by the lake -- happiness

We took a short drive today to see the lake --
so beautiful.  The hard part was that it was
Wednesday afternoon, and we drove by so many
stores that are closed now.  We must have passed
hundreds in our travels, and the dead stillness of these
normally thriving stores, and neighbourhoods is
so upsetting.

Here is what's open.  First of all we can all open our
hearts to each other, and make sure even though
we are scared, lonely, and frightened that we give
our best to everyone.

Plus every artist I know is eager to sell their work.
That includes the one writing this to you. Me.  If
you have an overwhelming need to cheer
yourself up with some art -- that can be done.
Contact me, or any artist whose work
attracts you, and find out what I (they)
would charge for the piece you love.  Shipping
is usually extra.  But hey.  Something
beautiful. That's like flowers right? -- essential.
And artists can ship from their own homes without
going out in public.

Keep safe, and practice social distancing.
