As I can

I hear thunder outside.  It’s March.  Strange times.  As a Minnesotan, I’m great at social distancing.  It’s easy for me to stay in my house during a March thunderstorm.  But I’ve been trying to figure out ways to give health advice.  I know people are washing their hands.  I see people walking outside when the sun is out.  I know kind people are helping each other.  I’ve been trying to be as Zen as I can manage, but I have family and friends, too.  I’m worried about them.  But I can hear the birds chirping in my yard every morning.  I can feel grateful for the people working to protect me and the people I love.  And I can have sympathy for my dog, who is hiding in the basement.  That’s as healthy as I can be today.
