winter wednesday

Okay, I know it’s not winter, but the “real feel” temperature here today is 28 degrees.  Oh, that cold wind is whipping around!  Doesn’t look like spring is coming any time soon.

I bundled up for my daily walk around the driveway, but I am glad to be back inside my warm office, with a cup of tea here on my desk.  I’ll go out again later.  The walking not only helps with the sciatica, but I think fresh air is like preventive medicine.

Boston health officials recently tested 400 homeless men and determined that 150 of them had the Corona virus but had no symptoms.  What does that mean?  Are they able to fight off the devastating effects of the virus because they live outdoors?  Because they are thin?  What is going on?

No one knows.  Not yet.  But I vote for “fresh air” being a top reason.  Which is why I don’t understand why our beaches, among other outdoor places, are closed.  We should be outside, practicing deep breathing (also good for lung health).  The more fresh air the better, as long as you’re not within six feet of anyone else.  That’s my theory!

Here’s a favorite from one of Austin’s finest, Johnny Nicholas.   The pandemic means he won’t be performing in RI in a couple of weeks, but we have all of his cd’s and are grateful for his music.

    We are so very sad to hear of your mother’s passing.
    Both our mothers were 94 and both without their husbands for 26 years.
    Your mother will always hold a special place in my heart.
