Connection during a shutdown

Despite the statewide mandatory Shelter-in-Place order, we have felt incredibly connected to friends, our community, and the world this week.

Looking out the window, I saw a complete stranger methodically picking up trash in the “moat” in front of our house and shouted my thanks through the screen!

In the evening, Mama and I joined a virtual sing-along started by a friend of mine in San Francisco. It was inspired by the videos of Italians singing together out their windows while under quarantine. For the second night in a row, Mama and I belted out the chosen song in our backyard. Tonight we got to join the live video and see my friend’s sweet dog, Lucy!

On this day…
