With the current situation going on, all we can do is it live it one day at a time.
Since COVID-19 has made its presence, it has changed the ways of life. When I go outside to take my walks, there seems to be very few, if that doing the same thing. Also, not that many cars are seen. Its so surreal, its like living in the Twilight Zone.
With the COVID-19 virus affecting our way of living, can we now call it “The New Normal?”
We could all use a time out, from the seemingly, neverending media barrage of the Coronavirus.
So far, I have been going about the days, and not getting myself all worked up about it.
I’m impressed with the people from Chicago. Hollywood is hype, New York is talk, Chicago is work.

hot searing sun
broiling the desert
not a house
or any building
to be seen
for as far
as the eye can see
carcasses of long

litter the ground
rattle snakes hissing
scorpions and black
seeking to bite
and deposit their
no water to be found
not an ideal place
to spend time in
such is life

There are some things in life I do not care to talk about, and that is religion. I am not religious, and i haven’t been for quite a long time. I don’t like it, when certain people try to talk about it, and when they do, I walk away.
Also, there are religious bloggers who have started following my blog. Fine. But don’t expect me to follow you. It’s not going to happen.
There is one religion I will read, and that is Buddhism, I keep that to myself, and it makes me a happy person.
Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.
Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought.

“It is my view that the simplest explanation is there is no God. No one created the universe and no one directs our fate. This leads me to a profound realization. There is probably no heaven, and no afterlife either. We have this one life to appreciate the grand design of the universe, and for that, I am extremely grateful.”
– Stephen Hawking
Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow the talent to the dark place where it leads. ~Erica Jong
