Today I was out in the car delivering some cake to friends when I saw a man in the middle of the 2 lane road. He was getting in the way of cars, shaking his fist at them, banging on car windows, and obviously was intoxicated or on drugs. He was scary so I called the police. On my way back home he wasn’t there so he either disappeared or the police picked him up. Very strange. Not something we usually see around here. I hope he is ok as I worry about people who are impaired in some way.
I will never forget the time my best friend called the police because there was a naked man in the street. The police noted that many people had called and there was much amusement about it.
The good thing that I saw on my way was families riding bikes together, playing ball. walking and other pursuits. My husband and I took a ride around the neighborhood in our golf cart and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine. (the golf cart is a workhorse for me I use it for yard work) We also walk the dogs.
This crisis has brought some families together. I know that it has probably caused problems for others but I hope the good outweighs the bad. There are always good things that come out of bad times. There will be people grieving the loss of loved ones but there will also be those who will see and appreciate the intangible things in life. They have had time to stop and smell the roses.
