Saturday Serenity: Clouds Over Lake Michigan – A Calm Reprieve

I hope you are keeping well and staying safe as we muddle our way through unchartered territory (a.k.a. COVID-19.)

I took this photo of Lake Michigan last week just before dusk. The clouds were a lovely mixture of dark, light, and somewhere in-between.

I feel this is a good representation as to where our planet is at the moment in dealing with the pandemic. We also must remind ourselves that over time we will begin to recognize that the simple things in life really are the most precious.

Don’t forget to please check in on someone you know that could really use a friendly ‘Hello, how are you?’ It will be more than welcome; I’m certain of it.

With various shops, restaurants, and services beginning to open (with restrictions) I think we can all breathe a sigh of relief to ‘do something normal,’ as my sweet Mum mentioned to me.

So here’s to having haircuts, trips to the park, a meal on a patio, and the promise of good and things ahead!

      LOL LOL LOL (times one million!) Huge apologies for not getting back to you until now, Joseph! I’ve not been feeling well, but am much better now! I have something funny to tell you. I sent a sample of my voice to someone looking for a Canadian accent for a short voice-over. The response was that they have ‘approved’ my American accent, but not Canadian! What the heck? 😉 Cher xo

    Great pic, dear friend. I am glad that you are moving forward over there. We are still in Quarantine in Argentina (well technically just some provinces, Buenos Aires-where I am included).
    I think your first sentences are eloquent, and pretty much describe the way I feel about this pandemic…. “an unchartered territory” . I wouldn’t have imagined this a few months ago. And, yet, this happened in a global scale. I guess we will all cherish more the ability to travel and move without restrictions in the future, right ?. I am sending you love and much love across the miles, dear Cher. 😘♥️🤗
