School buses in Libby, Montana are running their regular routes, but at a later hour, to deliver meals from the school to kids who would usually depend on free or reduced rate meals.

Also when we took the dogs for a hike we discovered a "Little Library" at the trail head. Overflowing with paperbacks it's a life saver when the public library is closed.

I just saw this wonderful poem that an American teacher wrote on the Covid-19 outbreak, to curb her own anxiety....

“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply.

Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.

And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.” -  💕

It's been two more months and there's still lots of bad news around, so here's a link to some outside the box good thinking:

Mary Daniel :

“After 114 days, I got to hug my husband today,” she wrote. “I also washed a lot of dishes. Proof where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
