Few on this planet are uneffected by the coronavirus pandemic.
We know someone in quarantine. We are quarantined or under stay-at-home orders. We know someone who is sick, dying, or has died. We are sick.
The local, national, and world news is saturated with this very real disease.
There is plenty of information out there, some good, some bad.
I'd like to make the case for the park bench. A place to sit and take a deep breath. Rather than racing through the park, let's sit down.
Maybe this blog can be a figurative park bench for you. A moment to not forget about the world, but to greater appreciate it.
Close your eyes, take five deep breaths. Imagine feeling the bench wood on your fingertips.
Open your eyes and go about your day, hopefully momentarily refreshed. And maybe, you'll find those benches throughout your day.
