Writing in the time of COVID-19: Day Fifteen

My friend Wendy invited me to join a worldwide Facebook group called, “What Do You See Outside Your Window? #stayathome.” I suppose it’s meant to create fellowship while sheltering at home, a virtual alternative to what Italians are doing when they sing together from their balconies.
Kalalea in SunI posted this iPhone photo that I snapped yesterday morning when I opened my drapes to greet Kalalea. People from South Africa, Israel, England, Switzerland, California,  Washington, and more commented.

Kalalea in MistToday, this is the view that greeted me out the same window. Alas, it’s raining again.

Every few years when it rains really hard, or rains for days on end, a waterfall develops on the mountain across the street. It’s been a couple years since I’ve seen one. A week ago, I woke up to such a waterfall and pulled out the Big Camera.

Our statewide counts continue to climb, as I’m hearing they are expected to do through the month. Statewide, we have a total of 351 cases with four deaths. On Kauai, we have 15 confirmed cases.

Be well. Be sane.

    I am enjoying going through my Flickr archive and pulling out photos to post on Facebook and ask people if they guess where it is. One friend in particular is proving very good at googling! Mostly I’m ignoring the various challenges. But it’s (sociologically) interesting to read all the responses to those.

    What beautiful pictures! When I look out my slider in the mornings, I look to see if any of my neighbors are up and out. I say a little prayer that they remain safe!

    Since the governor declared Stay ay home this past week, I see very few people on our daily walks. It’s been this way for 3 weeks.

    Our daily walks invigorate me as I enjoy the beauty of our universe in this time of crisis and uncertainty.

    Love and hugs
