Signs Of The Times In Florida

A few days ago, on entering our always quiet local mall which has so many closed down stores, but is a great place to go for an inside walk in the air-conditioning, we were greeted by this sign.



There was also a notice informing us that unfortunately the Easter Bunny won’t be visiting this year.


How nice it will be when life can safely go back to normal, but in the meantime, we’ll adhere to the social distancing and just walk around our community, smiling and waving from a prudent distance to other walkers. I love this serene statue in a neighbour’s front garden.


Wishing you all a peaceful Wednesday. Remember that happiness is the new rich, inner peace is the new success, good health is the new wealth and kindness is the new cool.

  1. I’m certainly obeying instructions Sylvia πŸ˜‰ Totally agree with those last sentiments .
    We all have a new way of living to get used to and some will find it harder in more ways than one for sure . Unexpected and brighter stories do come through the media though and for that I’m grateful … we must just hope there will be a turning point soon .
    Your DH’s piano playing must be coming on a treat πŸ˜‰ Keep safe xxx

  2. Our daily walks have become quite conversational with other neighbors. While maintaining a safe distance, we catch up on everything that is NOT going on. πŸ˜›

  3. The supermarkets here have finally woken up an are only allowing around 20 people in at a time in a controlled way, and distancing at the checkouts. Be well and stay safe there.

  4. Beautiful last lines. We are used to not having a lot of people around and being on our own. Seems peaceful to me! πŸ™‚ Yet, let’s hope business gets back to usual (literally) soon! Where in Florida are you?

  5. Great post Sylvia, and the last quote is so true, my parents had many relatives who died of TB and they always said, nothing matters but your health…

  6. It’s nice to see a friendly smile out there, Ad, isn’t it? A lot of people scurry past scowling. Well, I say a lot of people, but truth be told, there aren’t that many on the streets… 😦 Stay well!

  7. I like the last sentence – especially “good health is the new wealth”. We are lucky to be living in a fairly isolated place, but I still need to venture out to the shops for food. Hope you are both keeping well and keeping safe. And your M-i-L too!
