Boy are we angry...having been out and about (don't worry, mask and gloves are on) I can tell you that people are angry. Apparently a lot of pent-up tension.   The drivers on the road are excessively agressive which is saying a lot around here. Retailers are getting screamed at in a plant store ?!? They are in a store which has beautiful flora and fauna and they are angry about the establishment running out of basil...   Doctors call these rage attacks; sudden, out-of-control...

After wiping off all my groceries, I'm not sure I like grapes that smell like baby wipes   Without looking online, I try to guess what's in the Amazon box that's delivered to my front porch seemingly every day   I wonder why I still have a land line. The only people that call want to sell me something.   I'm hoping landscapers learn there are electric mowers and blowers that don't require ear plugs   Didn't realize how much time I spent traveling for work, not sure where that...

Our lives have certainly changed. Neil said yesterday (among other things) in a comment to Fred's blog "You think this is bad . Think Pearl Harbor , Hiroshima , Berlin." I couldn't agree more.   I compare the present event to my personal 'incidents' and it pales in comparison. Not everything is cancelled. Here's the start of a list...   Sunshine     Spring Love Friendship Reading Barbequeing Napping Devotion Music Dancing Conversation Connecting Kindness Imagination Devotion ...

One of the themes of Thomas Paine’s “Common Sense” is that there needs to be a balance between man’s pursuit of liberty and the government’s responsibility to maintain order for the common good. The great thing about America is that everyone is allowed to have their opinion. Exchange of opinions is what defines a democracy. Democracy, at its best, is the distillation of the spectrum of opinions and the establishment of a compromise which accommodates that span of ideas. In m...

Battle Lines   The Coronavirus pandemic has been an unprecedented stress on health care delivery. There are more patients, sicker patients, requiring more resources than seems possible. The specter of health care workers becoming infected has introduced an element of fear that most practitioners have never even imagined. As a recently retired anesthesiologist, I have stayed in touch with my colleagues in the New York metropolitan area to get a gauge on their day to day existe...

The liquor store near us bolted a piece of plexiglass on the front door with a little hole in it. You tell them what you want, they get it and pass it through to you.   Golf was okay to play, now it's not.   I missed Gotham Happy Hour yesterday because I forgot what day of the week it was.   The BBC's Living Planet series is incredible. I highly recommend it even if it's just to hear David Attenborough's narration.   I now have over 20 different background images for Zoom mee...

The new look for our times...

Mask

 

Venturing outside is a cross between enjoying the outdoors, avoiding people and wondering if anything you touch could infect you.

 

Stay strong, safe and healthy!

Some observations of my quarantined life...   • Driving is great! You can cruise anywhere in record time. Hit about 110 on rte 135 the other day.   • Wiping your whole body down with Purel every 5 minutes will give you a tingly feeling.   • Zoom meetings are showing everyone's true colors, whether you want to see them or not.   • Going to 7-Eleven can be dangerous...I think I pulled a muscle reaching over the table and stacked crates to pay for my coffee....

It's been quite a week. Businesses had to be 50% staffed, then 75% then 100%. States are locking down and people are still hoarding toilet paper..   I thought I might start a list of what you can do while sheltering in place. • Visit musuems online • Dust off that old instrument in your basement and give it a go • Put together a puzzle...that one in the back of your closet you got as a gift years ago :) • Start a journal (Fred's been doing it everday for a long time now) • Te...

The Greeks believed that inspiration or "enthusiasm" came from the muses, as well as the gods Apollo and Dionysus. Similarly, in the Ancient Norse religions, inspiration derives from the gods, such as Odin. Inspiration is also a divine matter in Hebrew poetics. Where does your inspiration come from...   When you're feeling reflective?   Excited?   Does conversation yield ideas?   What state of mind are you in when feel inspired?   Experiencing life?   Does it occur spontaneo...
