Post 32/2020 Saturday 10 October It’s time to refresh. Time to rename “Bubble and Squeak.” Time to cook up a new headline. Time to keep a sharp heads up on the pandemic bubble. Inevitably, we see signs of pandemic fatigue surfacing in many parts of the USA and the world. People are itching to find a way out of the abnormal world wide condition.
Throughout the US people are affected, either directly or indirectly, by wildfires, hurricanes, unemployment, food poverty, social upheaval. In the case of Covid-19, our main defense remains to wash hands, social distance, stay home when sick, wear a face covering. We do it for ourselves, others, frontline workers and, for me, a sign honoring those who have died from the coronavirus.
So my new sobriquet may not have the zing of “Bubble and Squeak,” but I hope it’s sufficiently expressive: “Stay-Go-Be-Do.” To wit: Stay. Make the most of being at or around home. Stay connected. Go. Proceed beyond home happily, wisely, safely. Let’s go! Be. Tend to your inner being. Be refreshed, renewed. Do. Carry out a task, exercise, start, finish. Just do it.
High school band visits campus
On Thursday evening the Goshen High School Marching Band entertained Greencroft residents, especially focusing on those who reside in assisted living and healthcare. How thoughtful. Soul stirring. Thank you!

Downtown Elkhart’s revitalization
On day or longer trips we mostly pay attention to out-of-doors activities–and the precautions taken by B&Bs or motels. We aim for weekday rather than weekend travel. We try to select walking areas with scant foot traffic. We are delighted to find restaurants where we can eat outside, often during off-hours. Sometimes it’s takeaway food. As the weather grows colder, we’ll likely spend more time at home’s hearth, while still booting up for bracing walks. A bit of travel does the soul (sole) good. Go, wise, happy, safe.
