Yaay! I'm back to work this week after having been laid off from my job for the last three months!

I work in health care and am getting used to all of the new changes. Although I'm elated to be back to work, I find wearing a mask all day uncomfortable and protocols tedious. All of the masked faces are a constant reminder that things are not as they should be. I've been concentrating on making eye contact with patients and co-workers in conversation, practicing "eye smiles" and using more vocal inflection.

I'm going to start my afternoon walks again tomorrow. I've discovered that fresh air, looking up at the birds in the sky and the tall trees, and stopping to name and smell as many flowers as possible is something simple I can do that gives me instant joy! It's a pleasant reminder that the seemingly littlest things in life can sometimes be just what we need.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

I have a funny feeling I'm not getting this blanket back
