SOLSC Dy 19
OK, we are to stay home and put our lives on hold for the time being. I can do that. However, if I just look out the dining room window, I can see that life still goes on.
Although no one is there now, I know that eventually this bird feeder will host a flurry of activity.
I am not the only one who knows this. Ned and Molly are also waiting although Molly has been distracted by me and is now watching to see what I do. A bird near our lilac bush seems to have caught Ned’s eye.
Not to be left left behind, Dustin also checks things out.
If I look a little further into the yard I can see our daffodils finally in bloom. I watched for weeks as the shoots burst forth from the ground and rose higher and taller. I watched as the yellow flowers started to show themselves. Now I enjoy the full bloom.
If I shift my gaze across the street I can see the park. Near the entrance there is a basketball court. It is empty for now, but I know that shortly some kids will come and start shooting hoops. Is this a wise thing to do? Probably not, but they will do it anyway.
Closer to the road there is a path. I know that someone will be out for a walk. Dogs need to go out so I know that there will be someone walking a dog.
I knew the basketball court would not be empty for long.
A husband and wife out for fresh air and a bit of exercise.
Yes, I might isolate myself in my house, but I am not isolated from the world.
