safe and sound....

We have entered a scary new time in the nation where the US is locked up and locked down and ordered to stay-at-home and self isolate so we can maintain social distancing.
6 ft away from people, covering our mouths, only going out for the most needed items like food and emergencies. 

The pandemic started this year called Covid19 or coronavirus and this is just a bland little entry to remember it. 

All the people who are Extroverts are going nuts being in their homes all the time. They pour out through social media with a huge increase of volume to be noticed and get attention of any kind. They say they are suffering Depression and huge anxiety because they are kept from interacting face to face with other people.
I hope they remember how it feels and how this whole thing made them feel.

This is what introverts who have depression and anxiety deal with on a day-to-day basis like me.
We are forced into un-needed meetings, and social situations we can barely survive and have to fight to do well every single day by those extroverts who just "don't get it" and claim we should just be more of a "joiner" to get ahead in life.

We have over 20 million people on unemployment from whole companies who have needed to shut down.  We have a HUGE chunk of the US on work from home, doing teleconference on some new service called Zoom.  We have brave men and women working at city services, grocery stores, and restaurants providing invaluable ways to keep us all going.

We had an existing service for playing D&D online called roll20.com that is bursting to their server seams to keep more nerds looking to play D&D connected as they move their games to online format so we can keep safe.

It's weird times.
Instead of have a nice day as a closing greeting we now say "stay safe or stay healthy"

So my friends; Stay Safe and Stay Healthy

Can I be a Phoenix?

Once upon a time a girl grew up and rose from the ashes like a Phoenix to shine and soar through the sky...

I want to be that girl.  When I arose from the ashes that I made of my life I was just dirty and a mess and had to find a bar of soap from my stash in the past and start cleaning up.

I have been through many journeys since my soap-making days and I feel like typing up a few things since no one comes here anymore. My little nook of cyberspace is now safe and sound.
I will curl up with a book and move my things and thoughts back into this space and start settling in.

Hope to see you soon.
