We're in the forever dull days, with their dull ways.


 

The question is: “Are people still collecting memories, these days?” "This isolation isn't bothering me much.” I say, if I'm asked. But I’m not sure that’s true. After hundreds of nights of dull solitude. I think each night might carry a value - of dear, and unmeasured loss. Loss of memories - because they never happened. How have we all changed?

As you grow older, you will wonder why you did not make better use of all that time you had to yourself! Aloha! Rico

I think my generation will be an exception to THAT rule.

I especially wonder of the effect on my 10-month old not being able to have play dates or even know what another baby looks like. Well done.

So true! We take them when they come, but in small packages. Come to think of it, even those packages don’t arrive! I did bring the grandsons to a Fall festival maze. So glad I did. It was new to all of us and made a great memory. For the most part housebound. Hopefully...hopefully...hopefully better days ahead.
