Thoughts and Links
Everyone is coping differently with the state of the world at the moment. The only advice I have, is to be gentle with yourself. For me, as I’m a goal-oriented person, setting small goals helps. I have to make them reasonable though. My favorite is brushing my teeth. That’s one, no matter how I’m feeling or what’s happening, I know I’ll get done at some point in the day.
I, like many others, am exploring the dimension of the interior of my home. While on my computer, I’m beginning to discover links worth investigating.

Whatever your situation, take care of yourself.
