Virtual Adult Day Care





MariSu's Bridge 



Is there a Better Way?
What would my Grandparents change if they could have made my life better?
My Parents? Me?
Thought provoking.
I'm home 🏡 grounded by MS.
I'm Traveling everywhere, around the world 🌎 and beyond.
The wireless network of like minded and unlike minded, alike.
Later will meet up with friends on Church St. In Burlington Vermont.
Then home for dinner news.
All whilst sitting here, in my virtual space,Traveling Virtually, like I told you before, Virtual Adult Day Care via Social Media.
Today's tedious tasks? Order meds, charged way too much, in the donut hole of Medicare, Straighten out tax snafus I cannot understand and wonder who made all the tax laws that suck.
No, back to my Virtual Neighborhood, like my old Neighborhood, a familiar daily cruise through the streets of my youth.

Morning Glory



The Sun came up yesterday,
Perhaps unaware humans on Earth 🌏
Were gathering to observe the Solar Eclipse.
I watched on the internet sites,
Bouncing between NASA and other places,
Vermont had 60% coverage.
It looked like clouds went in front of the Sun ☀️
Then it went dim,
Peaceful.
I never peeked,
Already having an MS scar on my eye.
The eclipse does do something to us,
Perhaps realigning our energy
Or pathways
Or maybe just take our minds off our differences,
And
Be Together
For a Moment.

Eclipse Day 8.21.017Don't look 👀 up!

A Sunny ☀️ Day is Planned for Eclipse Viewing Vermont 

I neglected getting viewing glasses 
Or welding glass
Or make a cardboard box 📦 viewer 
Like we did in grade school 
...Don't look 👀 up!

CDC Eclipse Viewing Safety

So I will watch via internet links
Sure to be in abundance...
We'll be about 60% solar eclipse in Vermont 
I'll listen and observe out the windows
With Tommy.

Mom's Butterfly





Zen Moments 

Mom came to me as a Butterfly,

A Black Swallowtail 

Adorned in Gold

Lighting on burdocks 

Saying 

I am here.
