I’ve had plenty of time on my hands and I haven’t been reading as much as usual, (except for the coronavirus news). As I mentioned in an earlier post, I haven’t been going to the condo gym and exercising in the living room hasn’t been too interesting or invigorating. Anyhow, to soothe myself, and maybe you, I thought I would put up some more tree photos with little narratives to go with them.
Well, I found the photos I wanted, but the little snippets sounded like I was back in high school journalism class (if not junior high journalism class). The writing needs work, but I don’t have the words right now. However, Virginia’s Governor, Ralph Northam, just gave us the stay-at-home order. I want to send the trees out now with the promise of some words soon.
Please stay safe; please stay well.
