We must cherish what we have while we have it, before it all slips away. ~M
It feels like we’re heading into a new normal. I’ve been on vacation, and as I watch my girls play in the pool, I wonder how long it will be, before even this sort of activity is no longer allowed. It’s sort of a scary thought. Everything we’ve known for such a long time is suddenly changing. Is this our new reality? Everything is closing; people are in a panic at the stores to buy basic necessities. The malls, movie theaters, restaurants, and sports facilities have all become like ghost towns. We never prepared ourselves for such things. And now I feel like one of the few who isn’t ready for the next wave of whatever is coming.
I’m not worried about the virus. I’m healthy for my age, and my girls are young enough that this won’t likely hinder them at all. But what I am worried about is the bigger picture ― the mass chaos, the wars which could break out, and the ones that already are. And I’m concerned that people will foolishly do things to harm other people. This world is already a scary place sometimes, but this seems to go beyond anything I’ve ever known or seen. The real threat isn’t the virus, but instead the human response to the virus, this is what scares me the most, and this is what I fear will be our biggest downfall.

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything and so I thought I’d give you all a quick update. I haven’t been shirking my blogging responsibilities out of choice, just been really busy because I’m back in school now and it’s taking up a lot of my time.
So today, I wanted to share what I’ve been doing in one of my classes. I decided to take a fun class to begin with, and here’s one of the drawings I recently completed. It’s been so much fun getting back into sketching, which I really haven’t done much of since high school (which was 30 years ago), but it’s slowly coming back to me. Anyway, it’s always good to revisit the things we used to enjoy, all in order to see if we still find pleasure in them years later. I’ll try to share more photos of my work from time to time.
Hope all of you have been well. I’ll try to catch up on reading all of your blogs as soon as I can. And if there’s something I’ve missed that you’d like to share with me, then please leave a link to your post in the comments below. I always love it when you guys share things with me like that. 😉
Well… I have decided to take a chance that WordAds may eventually grant me the honor of being able to use ads on my page. I have to find someway to make a little bit of money, since I am a homeschooling mom after all! So, today I finally chose a blog domain and now I am going to change my theme so that it will be compatible with WordAds. Wish me luck! I will let you all know when I am done. Sorry for the inconvenience in the meantime. Hopefully this doesn’t take me too terribly long! 🙂
Phew! I am finally done making changes! Let me know what you think. 🙂
