Donna Rae Jones walked me through my first ever video conversation. She was at her own home, and I was in my apartment. She hopes to set up a way to complete the sessions of gentle chair yoga she was teaching here in Crown's fitness center before everything got cancelled.
Click here to read CNN's Thursday report, and be inspired that good people can work together to make this a better world in the midst of the pandemic.
"Erlanger goes through 500 medical gowns a day and Parkridge, 300."The gown is one piece, and you don’t have to touch anything to put it on. You literally just open your hands up, and then you put it over your head. One of the doctors said, "This is what America’s about ... people teaming up together to fix the problem." Many thanks to Dr. Lisa Smith, a pediatric surgeon at Erlanger for her prototype.
SOCIAL DISTANCING 101
View from my window: Two people walking on the other side of the street; he's on the sidewalk, she's in the street, the dog's on the grass between them. Two people walking on our side of the street; he's in the middle of the sidewalk approaching the driveway to the apartments next door, she's coming toward him, he doesn't move over, so she curves ALL the way out into the street as they pass.
The doggie couple kept their distance all the way out of sight. The man on our side continued his entitled way in the middle of the sidewalk all the way out of sight, while the young woman disappeared from my view as she neared the Crown Center. Which of these people are you emulating?

Full circle now to my first sentence above: "I haven't done nearly as much reading as I'd have expected." So I'd better get back to reading. And rather than journaling along with my two books by Michelle Obama (Becoming: A Guided Journal) and Jacqueline Winspear (What Would Maisie Do?), I seem to have been "journaling" day by day on my blog.
Update: I started writing this post on Friday and didn't change the heading when I posted it. My days have run together. Oops!
