I caved and bought the complete “Murder, She Wrote” series on Amazon, and the four-movie set on ebay. When in times of great stress, I turn on the easy-watching T.V. shows. In the end, you know the mystery will be solved. Or in the case of The Dick Van Dyke Show, that no matter what shenanigans Rob and Laura get up to, no matter what fights they get into, they are going to be ok.
The real champion of soothing television right now is The Repair Shop. It’s so pleasant. Nobody is mean. People have beloved treasures and skilled artisans lovingly restore them. The people bring in their ancient teddy bear, Victrola, sled, you name it. They bring it. They leave it, a little worried usually, in the hands of The Repair Shop. Then they come back and get the unveiling of their restored family treasure. It’s perfect T.V. for such a stressful time.
One thing I wonder is how single people who are falling in love are faring in their mostly virtual worlds.
I wonder how marital partners who were having some trouble before all of this are faring. Healing? Growing further apart?
I have seen a lot of gardens growing, home renovations, and side-projects pop up all over my friend’s feeds.
What are you growing? What are you letting go of?
