One Word Sunday: Two

Two friends sitting chatting on a bench; no masks and no social distancing. This sculpture was at an art exhibition we attended in February, just a few days before the news of Covid-19 broke on the unsuspecting world.

I know I’m a bit late for Debbie’s ‘One Word Sunday’ challenge, but here’s the link if you want join in.

Hope your week is going well.

  2. Argh back in the days before Social distancing rules invented.. Though there is nothing social about distancing… Beautiful sculpture … Sending thoughts your way Sylvia and well wishes ❤ We shall overcome!! ❤

  3. These statues are a tribute to what is to come. For those who will not put away the masks even when they can, fear is their god. For those who will get back to be human again, love is their God. I truly know what camp I am in now! SMILE!! xo

  4. Strangely, I don’t miss the social occasions with friends, but I do miss not being able to entertain my family each week as I normally do and seeing the grandchildren run around together. It wasn’t too bad in the summer because we could meet up in the garden and easily social distance.

    It must be awful for you being so far away from yours. Does this pandemic make you want to pack up and come back home?

    • We are so missing seeing our family in England and in South Africa as well as those up in New Jersey. I guess that’s the penalty one pays for living so far apart from one another. It hasn’t seemed a problem until this virus happened. We often feel like packing up and going back to South Africa and it could well happen one day. We’ll see. 🙂

  5. And then the world changed….. Oh, Sylvia, we are living history and learning what it means to be friends within a virtual existence. When I shop for groceries – such a simple task in the past – I are confronted by masks and protocols. What hasn’t changed is the beauty of kindness, generosity, hope and resilience. These are the things I feel when I come to your place, read your post, enjoy your photos and relish the delicious conversations. Thank you, my dear friend, for creating a space with hope flourishes.

      • I LOVE your mother!!!! She understood that life was in constant change and transition. I have kept her thought “this too shall pass” with me over the past months. She and Marcus Aurelius are kindred spirits: “Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together,but do so with all your heart.” Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

  6. I get an anxious feeling whenever I see art or advertising that depicts people who are not wearing masks and social distancing. It is an involuntary reaction from deep in my fear.

  7. When I looked at your very interesting photo and sculpture, my first thought was that they are sitting so close together! Hopefully we will go back to normal one day!
    Happy Wednesday Sylvia
