These are scary times. I’m not particularly worried. By the time I need more toilet paper, hopefully, the panic will be toned down. At this point, I don’t have to get out except…Starbucks. And fresh air. And cabin fever. I also worry for the owners/workers of the small restaurants we frequent. We’ll start doing takeout to help them but I am NOT a fan of Chinese takeout. I ❤ Chinese food, but it just doesn't taste the same if I take it home. Anyway. I'll do it for our friends. I will need dog and cat food in a few days. This said, while so many people fret and worry and fear this pandemic, we all have other fears that are just as pressing, looming, frightful. When this message from the Universe hit yesterday, I had to share it today.
Silver, have you noticed it, too? How fears are a lot like highway billboards?
The faster you’re moving, the quicker they approach, the larger they get, and the more they block your view of what’s real and alive. To the point that they tower above you, larger than life itself, giving you pause and more reason than ever to turn around and retreat to safety.
Yet if you muster the courage to stay the course, in just a blink they’re behind you, put into proper perspective. And then as quickly as they appeared, they completely vanish.
If you want to stay the course, then please, just stay the course.
Tallyho, ho, ho –

Silver, that’s why we did away with billboards here a long time ago. Besides, no one uses our highways.
Makes sense, doesn’t it? And a great analogy but…we ARE dealing with the Universe so… I’m breathing easier these days, no pun intended. Stress tightens my chest and it hurts to breathe. Things are looking up and a few of my billboards are in the rearview mirror. I’m looking forward, slowing down a bit to see the scenery and realize that life is pretty darn good. The depression is still with me but I CAN look on the bright side so I have hopes that this, too, shall pass, and it’ll be just a big ol’ honkin’ billboard–like that talking on in that Steve Martin movie–that waves goodbye as I drive by. How are y’all doing during these weird and wacky times?
