Because We Can!

April 5, 2021

Today was “doggie gathering day” for the weekend.  Because it is Easter weekend, I thought everyone might be too busy. 

I started by just asking one friend, the closest neighbor, if our dogs might get together.  She thought at least one other friend would want to come, so I sent out the text invite.  To my great surprise, most could come.  We ended up with nine dogs and seven women.

Turns out that the normal spring things are… well, just not happening.  High school lacrosse games have not yet started.  Family gatherings?  Not encouraged, and definitely not across state lines. Easter egg hunts?  Nope, not this year either. 

Turns out we were all free on what should usually be a super-busy weekend.  Silver lining!

Silver Linings…

started as my personal response to 2020’s global pandemic of COVID-19.  When I published them locally,  I was surprised by how much people responded to them.


I hope they bring some positivity to you, too, during this unsettling time
