I like Facebook and Social Media. I like to stay in touch with family and friends that aren't close by......except during election time. If everyone could just see things my way, it would be a better world for us all. I say that jokingly, but during this time, during a very important election, and where our country is going, it is quite true.
I long to get back to pictures of new puppies and frolicking kittens, and families having fun. But for now, in order to make a more perfectly calm brain, I need to take a break from social media.....and yet I can't. I am too hooked on the memes and stories and the comments on social media. God help me.
Many states have mandated the wearing of masks in order to get a handle on the spread of Covid-19. Whether you agree or disagree, there are factors that make it hard to function in a society of masked people. While trying to do our part, it helps if we can take into account that masking can cause a disability to those that are hearing impaired person.
Monday mornings this past Summer have been filled with teaching guitar, ukulele, percussion and putting together music to any grandchild that is interested. Surprisingly, I have had multiple takers on the offer and we have had some fun jam sessions with 12-13 of the kids together on a Sunday afternoon barbecue. This recording was one of the older kids, first take and she did pretty good. What a blessing to be able to pass on playing and making music to the next generation.
Just today, it was reported our president and wife have tested positive for Covid-19. This podcast was set up before knowing the news. How many people were exposed to Covid during the rallies he brought to MInnesota? How many people refuse to heed the advice of the CDC regarding masking and social distancing? Our numbers are going up in MInnesota, over 100,000 positive cases and close to 2000 deaths.
This is a little rambling on what we can do to maybe get Covid under better control. It is up to all of us to do our part.
