The Hermit resonates with me. I hadn't realized it before, but I've been a hermit for several years. I'm fine in my own company. I have my books, fiber work, and computer to keep me busy. Because of health issues I am high risk as far as COVID-19 is concerned. That being said, I don't mind being isolated. Do I read the case counts and all that? Sure. Not because I'm panicked - I'm not. I've known for years something like this would happen eventually. The Mother has had enough of us ruining Her and is fighting back. The best way to get through this is to take it a day at a time, and with positive thoughts and prayers. A sense of humor helps too. I was planning to take my BFF out next week for her birthday. Not anymore! We have plenty of toilet paper but one can never have enough books! If for some reason we would lose the internet, it's inconvenient but not the end of the world. Those of us who grew up in the 60's and 70's can handle this better, I think, than people who don't know who who the Beatles are (a travesty!), read analog clocks, know how to write in script, and use rotary phones (those are some of my favorite you tube vids). And most importantly, as Janet said, we're never truly alone. That's a very comforting thought.
I don't watch much TV, and when I do, I'm usually working on some sort of project. Lately I'm finding that I haven't been on social media much either. My daughter and her family are always on FB but I can't sit all day reading posts. I do love the fact that I can research to my heart's content on line. I spent a lot of time at the library as a kid looking stuff up. It's a great idea to unplug every so often. We are so dependent on electronics of all kinds, and I'm as guilty as the next person. I get laughed at when I say one of these days there's going to be a major crash and what are people going to do? The cloud is a great thing and the ability to store information is great. But, I still print a lot of stuff out. I wonder if other people raised in the 70's feel that way. There's more to life than watching TV and texting. It's amazing how many people don't get that!

Hi Janet - A lot of creative people seem to be going through the same thing as you are. Your words certainly resonated with me! For some time now I have been wrestling with these same thoughts. I'm at a crossroads, both physically and creatively. As I get older I find that there are certain things I can no longer do, and I've been fighting with myself to accept the changes and find new creative outlets. I have a feeling your blog (love the colors, btw) will help others searching for their truth as well. Many hugs and blessings!

I have used Doreen's Angel oracle for a few years and I find it works well for me. That's the beauty of oracles and tarot decks - there's something for everyone.

Thanks for the writing prompts! I want to get into the habit of writing a bit each day, and this is a good way for me to start.
