With yesterday’s administration of a 2nd vaccine shot it’s safe to say we’re doing our part in the recovery. Still living in a state of heightened quarantine due to ongoing caregiver duties but it’s all worth it.
Good to see some restrictions being cautiously lifted provided everyone conducts themselves in a responsible manner. Only time will tell.
Until news arrives to do otherwise the masks stay in place and basic distancing guidelines are the rule of the day. Such a minor inconvenience considering all the good it will do for so many in the long run.
I have hereby had my first of two vaccine shots. The whole appointment was uneventful and rather dull but at least it was on-time.
Still have to follow guidelines until everyone is far enough out of the pandemic woods but at least it’s a step forward. Only been 2 hours since the injection so now’s the time to see if there’s any discomfort or fatigue. Time will tell.
Personally I’m looking forward to participating in live gallery shows with an attending public once again!
Not at all art related but tomorrow I’ll be receiving the first of two vaccination shots. Sure, precautions are still going to be followed to the letter but I’m not going to complain about progress.
Out of respect for all here I pledge to try not to cry during the actual injection. At least I’ll try.
Sounds of Silence
Seems some folks don’t care or are just plain forgetful…
Oh, the Irony!
Those unfortunate enough to be swallowed in by the endless grumblings of those on social media whining and moaning about how lockdowns and other public health precautions have absolutely ruined their social lives may not be entirely surprised by all this.
It’s not all the measures in place to preserve health and life that’s ever had me concerned. It’s when finally restriction start to lift and those same complainers gather in bars and restaurants to compare with friends who truly had it worse. Perhaps they’ll feel deserving of a Medal of Valor.
What we’ll never hear about are the countless numbers of people who’s own lives have been barely touched by the pandemic. The people who pass through life without a single phone call or invitation to coffee for not only years but decades on end. The people pushed aside for no other reason than it’s accepted in society to do so. They are, in short, disposable.
Provided these same people serve some kind of financial benefit to someone else then they’re allowed to keep passing through unnoticed.
But when everyone is eventually out and jovial having been freed from lockdowns and extensive precautions there will always be a good number of people who will not be sharing in the celebrations and elation. They won’t be seen at any parties or cookouts: they weren’t invited.
Such is life for those deemed disposable.
But hey, let’s just end this with a fun happy picture to keep everyone entertained..,
The stupidity of the human race never ceases to amaze me. The guidelines for avoiding contracting & spreading the coronavirus are basic and easy to understand yet, given a choice, so many decide to do otherwise then act surprised when they end up ill with the virus.
It’s not all that difficult, folks!
Provided we all remain diligent until the pandemic is under control many of us can live long and productive lives. It just seems a multitude of morons can’t think that far ahead.
I’m one of the caregivers for an older couple, one with advanced Alzheimers the other battling Cancer, so there’s no room for error or compromise when it comes to this worldwide health crisis. If I contract COVID-19 then I might as well start planning and saving money for this couple’s funerals. Fairly basic logic there.
Just stick with the guidelines and remain guarded until doctors and health officials give us the approval to begin resuming more relaxed practices. It’s the least we all could do.
