Staying at home

Today we are going to Muse about the respect for others.   If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.



We have entered into May with staying at home and social distancing. It has been two months.

For the most part we are staying at home. When I walk the dog which I do three or four times a day, the walks are short and I wear a mask. When possible I avoid other pedestrians.

Being home bound is tedious. I have learned to make tapioca pudding from scratch and I have made a pizza from scratch, even the dough. It wasn’t very good, something to improve upon. I’ve watched more television than every before. We have played many rounds of Canasta.

This is all wearing and like everyone I am eager for the restrictions to to be dropped and for life to return to normal. But, I believe what we think of normal is not going to come back.

On the bright side, the golf courses, parks, beaches and tennis have been opened to allow people to enjoy some entertainment providing they do it responsibly keeping their social distance.

At our club, tennis and croquet opened this last week. Everyone was happy to get the chance to play outside in our gorgeous weather. The croquet players I observed wore masks. Some lowered them as they got hot. I only saw a few tennis players with masks.

The issue is being a responsible person, respectful of others. Wearing a mask will not protect you. It will protect others. It shows a respect for their health. Conversely not wearing a mask in public shows a lack of caring and respect for others.

Please wear a mask when you are out and about.
