Seeking Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness seems illusive when we are Social Distancing, Masking, and Isolating for the good of the Realm.
On top of that, we’re in a dry heat spell with 100+ temperatures almost daily and there’s a 3-week ongoing wildfire on the mountain near our home. Oh, and we have long-smoldering fear and fury in the streets. Did I mention it’s election season with political claptrap flying hither and yon over every media?
Sounds like a Sci-fi novel. No where is safe.
Not exactly the best Creative environment for a writer, especially one who favors Romance. So what’s a writer to do?
I try to be positive (& creative) within the social boundaries imposed on me so I made a list of things I enjoy. I encourage you to do the same. What I really want is to escape, get away, breathe in clean air, walk on a beach, play golf, eat seafood and salads. And drink wine at sunset overlooking the Dordogne River Valley in Southern France. In my dreams.
But I see that I’m way off mark. Here is what’s trending now in our isolated world:
Guy Fieri - who is feeding front line healthcare workers and helping out of work food workers. Yay Guy!
Reruns of Downton Abbey. So we think we have it bad! Okay, I feel better. Writing about it helps. Highly advised. I’m off to find my inspiration to do my favorite happy thing. Write! And maybe read a bit. While isolating....with out my mask.
What’s on your list for Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of happiness during these unusual times? If reading is one of your favorites, may I recommend my three featured books this summer. They’re on sale on my HOME page (see above) for 99 cents each! Fall in love again with:
