Day 2672: Face it!

Face it!

Oscar does not understand the whole social distancing thing…

… but I do.

Face it!  I’ve been trying to reassure my worried friends with how well my face looks in that recent photo.

Face it!  I’ve been trying to put more smiles on my own face by watching favorite funny movies from simpler times, like Big and What About Bob?

I’ve also been stuffing my face with good food, like this:

Face it!  Humans have survived pandemics before and our best hope of survival is if we face this together (at a distance, of course!).

Face it!  This scene, starring somebody else recovering from the coronavirus,  always puts a smile on my face.

 

What’s been helping you face these strange times?

I look forward to facing your comments, below.

Face it!  I haven’t been able to go out into the world to collect new expressions of gratitude, so here are some old ones, which include a few nice faces:

Day 2665: How bad could it be?

How bad could it be?

How can we even answer that question when

How bad could it be that I’m self quarantining, knowing I’m doing the best for myself and for all those I care about?

How bad could it be for me to share these photos with my good readers?

How bad could it be if

  • Michael cooks delicious pasta and
  •  Oscar and Harley look up and share our happiness?

How bad could it be if Stephen Sondheim is turning 90 years old this month? Here he is playing “Move On” at the memorial service for Michael Bennett, who died during the AIDS pandemic:

 

How bad could it be where you are, here and now?

How good could it be to express gratitude to all those I appreciate, including YOU?

Day 2664: The ultimate law of life

Part of my comfort plan for yesterday included drinking some Yogi Tea, which had something to say about the ultimate law of life.

Do you agree that love is the ultimate law of life?  If not, what is?

Might the ultimate laws of life include

  • truth,
  • justice, and
  • balancing our personal needs with the needs of others?

Do the ultimate laws of life threaten to break down during a worldwide pandemic? If so, what can we do to preserve them?

Do you see any other ultimate laws of life in my other recent photos?

Harley ultimately loves to be on the table.

This is what I found on YouTube when I searched for “The ultimate law of life”:

 

One of the ultimate laws of my life is expressing gratitude, every day.
