I am also in California...near San Francisco. Honestly, my life has changed completely, but it’s not bad..I just don,t leave the house. My daughter does the grocery shopping for me once a week..she comes over, but we stay physically apart from one another.

i don,t see anyone occasional neighbor..but I am OK. So far, I don,t know anyone who is or has been sick. I have been out 3 times to medical appts..(Sigh..)

My best wishes for everyone. I have a feeling this is going to last into winter. 

I am still stunned.

Hi Sara

I live in CA and fortunately am doing fine! Thank you for asking. I agree we should be in a much better place than we are.

Hi All...I wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing, especially those in CA, TX, AZ and FL.  This is crazy.  After 6 months, we should be in a far better place than we are now.  Please everyone stay safe.

Hi guys..I have been reading, but in a weird place, so not posting..but I saw something on TV last week, about the stars helping create us..and had to jump in.

i have been watching reruns of SLIDERS and Quantum one episode, of SLIDERS..main character QUIN, who .”slides” with 3/friends from one dimension to another, on talking to A boy who is HIM when he was 10 years old..they r gazing at the stars, and QUIN tells the look at all those stars..and explains how WE ALL CAME FROM THEM.  Billions of years ago..we were DUST, but as timemwent on, humans were created, basically/loosely from stardust.

Or, another scenario..we could have TRAVELED from one of those stars..who knows?

Happy 4th everyone.

Sara, I agree with you. 

I think of mother earth as a living entity connected to our living universe, created by our Eternal Father - God.

There are more stars in each galaxy than the grains of sand on any beach on this planet.

I believe that everyone and everything is connected.

So, yes God has our attention, just not sure if everyone gets it yet.

Comment by Sara Murphy on July 4, 2020 at 1:12pm's funny you say that about Mother Earth.  Back when this lockdown started in mid-March, I had said to some people that it was God's way of sending us all to our rooms to think about what we've done.  I'm ready for my "grounding" to be over

Hello everyone.

Happy 4th of July. Hope you are all well. Please stay safe!

Happy 4th. stay safe.  

I must say that life has changed everyone one and as someone I know on FB said "it's as if mother earth has sent us all to our rooms".  

Everyday life as we knew it will be different on the other side of this pandemic,  My prayers are simple, may we all be better and treat everyone, everywhere the same way we want to be treated.

Sending hugs to one and all,
