The world’s gone crazy, and not the cat lady kind. We suddenly find ourselves in various states of voluntary quarantine and lockdown. For some of us, the introverts, this may not change a lot of our daily routine, but for many, it’s a complete turnaround.
No matter what we think, it is what it is. Now that we’ve stocked up on toilet paper and black beans, let’s consider how we can turn this scary inconvenience into something worthwhile. For me, spending more time writing is right up my alley. If you’re not a writer, however, maybe this is a good time to catch up on your reading. Every author I know is running ads for their work, and I’m about to do the same. If my books bring even one person a little relaxation and relief from today’s crises, I have done my part.
Meanwhile, many animal shelters are closing their doors to the public and asking for foster parents to step up and help with the animals. Fostering is easy, and shelters are more than happy to help you through it any way they can. Please consider volunteering to foster a shelter animal during this difficult time.
Here are my two fosters, a bonded pair of seniors from the Oregon Humane Society:
