OUR VIRTUAL REALITY

Our world is a very different place than it was a few weeks ago. And we don’t know what to expect. It’s a strange time but I don’t need to tell you that.

Watching television I’ve seen a few images that have stayed in my mind. With such caring and comfort, they express our need to connect, and something about that assures me that we will be okay:

There on his balcony, Italian tenor Maurizio Marchini sends his voice soaring, serenading his quarantined Florentine neighbors.

In North Carolina, a young woman, excited about her engagement, stands outside her quarantined grandfather’s nursing home window pointing to her new ring with a huge smile on her face.

Yesterday was our daughter Olivia’s birthday. This is a woman who loves to celebrate her birthday and social isolation isn’t going to get in the way of that. We received an email invitation to:
Olivia’s virtual Birthday Happy Hour
Time: 6:00

At 6:00 we gathered in front of our computers, glasses in hand and a few nibbles on the side, to enjoy our virtual birthday party get-together. Genius!

We were having a party, and it had been something to look forward to!

My mother’s nursing home has shut its doors to all visitors. I understand it is for everyone’s safety. But honestly I’m finding that the isolation isn’t easy. So when I call and hear her voice, a smile comes over my face because I know she is okay; we’ve connected and she knows I’m there.

We’re in isolation but we can and should continue to connect.

“I think it’ll be important to do this every so often,” Olivia said. “We need to take care of our mental wellbeing.”

She is so right—Happy birthday, Olivia!

I have the kind of personality that loves being home. But being home only works if I have something to look forward to—hence, my love of entertaining. It’s a good balance that allows me to spend time alone and time with friends. Mark and I decided to host a virtual dinner party. How are we going to pull this off. . .

There is so much going on. I don’t know about you but I’m glued to the news. Like the rest of the world I’m trying to find out . . . something, anything that will help. What we know is that we need to wash our hands AND not touch our faces. Washing my hands is easy but not touching my face, that is hard! Who knew I spe...
