The smile beneath the mask-

You can tell when people are smiling with their eyes beneath the bandit look, I’m used to it, happy to comply and do my part to keep folks around me safe. So I’m not the one to chime in on a negative post of a lady having bad day, all over social media, I’m not promoting it or laughing either. We all have our battles. I’m reminded of this seeing people in the community act in ways I know they wouldn’t otherwise behave like this, some even yelling at others, onlookers afraid to “see”. People are stressed, frightened, worried. But we have to “see”, we can’t ignore this opportunity to be strong for our fellow man. Put that mask on. Social distance, wash them hands. Ultimately the life you could be saving, could be that person staring at you in the mirror, or that person you passed at the gas station. Stay strong, be safe and kind. You are loved. (I’m reminded of this even more with a cardinal hopping at my elbow, as I sit on the steps. IF that is not a sign- well I don’t know what it is!) We can do this together! Oh yes we can! #bekind #gsostrong #laricecan

A place to return to my writing, to start amid the plethora of social media outlets, of which it’s hard to be heard, harder yet to believe the perfect selfies and perfect lives. I’m a Lover of four leaf clovers, wildflowers, second chances and lucky pennies. When that time comes, I hope to have left the world a little better than I found it. Let’s create, laugh and be kind to all.

You say it so nicely it could inspire those ‘individual thinkers’ to consider other peoples health and lives perhaps?
Alas, I guess some people want you to know what they are and how little they seem to value themselves and others because that’s how we perceive no-maskers!
