Signs of Our Times

I am sure none of us has ever lived in a time like we are in now.  Social distancing, wash your hands, stay at home, no gatherings, no funerals, limited travel.  I feel like everything I touch might be infected.  Today we went for a walk.  I didn't touch anything.  But as I straightened my glasses, my first thought was--now I have to disinfect my glasses!  Really?  Probably not, but I feel everything is a threat.

These signs around our resort help build this fear.

Even the grill is closed.  No carry-out available here.

We went to the post office the other day.  Look at the plastic hanging from the ceiling to protect the clerks.  And notice the empty mail crates stacked in front of each window to keep is 6 feet away.

This is an encouraging sign we saw yesterday in someone's window here in our resort.  In case you can't read it, it says, "Social Distance Hugs to all!"

There are signs from God throughout the park that brighten our days.  The cactus plants are in full bloom.

Follow the guidelines and stay healthy, everyone.  Hopefully, all this will be over in the not-too-distant future.


  1. Doubt that anyone could have foreseen anything like this happening in our Lifetimes.
    Great pictures of the blooming Cactus.
    Be Safe and Enjoy Isolating.

    It's about time.

    1. We're trying to be safe but I'm tired of isolating. How about you.

  2. Our friends are back in Canyon Vistas for the month, sounds like the same things we are experiencing here in TX. We are experiencing the joy of April here as we see flowers of ours blooming, the hibiscus and cactus have abundant blooms. Stay safe.

  3. We have spent the spring in Texas. It is even more beautiful than here.
