Famous lines of poetry, rewritten in the age of COVID-19. Utterly hilarious!

I might be the only one, but these days I feel that sort of overwhelm that makes me question almost everything in my life. And it can be hard t figure out where to start when you have no idea where to start, and how to move forward. But this was a good post that I found helpful- starting with small things that are doable in a time that feels a little overwhelming, even if you don’t have a concrete idea of what it is that you should do next.

Have a lovely weekend, friends. Consider having a tea or coffee by your front door or back door or by any window in your place that opens, and get some fresh air, listen to the birds, and marvel. There’s a lot of good out there. Don’t forget, you are part of it.
