And People Stayed at Home
Kathleen O’Meara (1839–1888).


And people stayed home
and read books and listened
and rested and exercised
and made art and played
and learned new ways of being
and stopped
and listened deeper
someone meditated
someone prayed
someone danced
someone met their shadow
and people began to think differently
and people healed
and in the absence of people who lived in ignorant ways,
dangerous, meaningless and heartless,
even the earth began to heal
and when the danger ended
and people found each other
grieved for the dead people
and they made new choices
and dreamed of new visions
and created new ways of life
and healed the earth completely
just as they were healed themselves.

Written after the potato famine in Ireland.


Nothing new under the sun...

Cheers

Chris

Dig in for the long run folks!

Root veg and lettuce is the way to go, peas and beans. Even try it in a window box, you may be grateful one day.

Meanwhile lots of local stores doing deliveries. Don't forget your garden centers as they have thousands of plants without homes. Most doing home delivery.

Take care folks!

Indeed - my peas and broccoli raab are due for planting out in the next day or so. My other brassicas, first batch of lettuces, tomatoes, cucumbers and melons are coming on nicely. I'm leaving it a bit longer before I sow parsnips and carrots though.

I've just noticed on the web that Britons have been told to keep torches and gloves handy in case there are power outages, amid potential engineer shortages.  Not the sort of thing you want to hear living in the London area.

I'll be keeping handy a few more things than gloves and bloody torches!

David.
I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.
If a friend seems distant, catch up with him.

As for the advice to stop touching your face I've stopped shaving, growing a beard.

Thought, how do you wash your face without touching it?

Do Karcher make a mini jet-washer unit for the bathroom? :hmmm:  :D

2 comments re beards:
- anti-virus facemasks will not be as effective over a beard
- beards need to be kept clean and groomed too, perhaps requiring even more face touching, to keep at bay the dreaded ‘beard lice’ and to stop birds nesting

There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.
