Since March 2020, we have been living with the threat of COVID. When you listen to the news, the first thing you hear is what is happening in Ukraine, and then COVID. When are we going to get back to living our lives without the fear of COVID?
Now we don’t have to wear a mask when indoors. Is that safe? Whenever I enter a store, the first thing I do is put my mask on. Yesterday when I went food shopping, most people were still wearing a mask.
I was speaking to someone yesterday who is frightened to leave her house. She will only go into a store if there are only a few people there. Otherwise, she just leaves. On the other hand, some of my friends are not wearing masks and even going to the movies. Everyone has their own opinions.
I am careful and still living my life. I’m meeting friends for lunch or dinner, going into stores with a mask, and not going to the movies.
Instead, I have been watching a lot of movies and series on Netflix, Amazon Prime or Acorn. One of my favorite series on Acorn is “Murdoch Mysteries,” about a police detective working in Toronto, Ontario. I have just finished the book Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict and Victoria Christopher Murray: a novel about J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian, Belle da Costa Greene, a Black American who was forced to hide her true identity and pass as white in order to leave a lasting legacy. I highly recommend the book. What books have you been reading, and what movies or series are you watching?
