I was going to post a vlog like I normally do every week, but due to the amount of traffic now clogging our poor, overworked internet servers, I’ll have to update y’all via a text format.
I’m not gonna lie, I’m kinda freaked about this coronavirus thing. I laughed it off, and I joked and shared the memes just like everybody else, but crap just got real. This ain’t. Thank God, there are no known cases near where I live, and let’s hope it stays that way. I’m not gonna lie; I’ve struggled with mild medical anxiety for a long time. It’s not as bad as it used to be, but it’s always there. I don’t want to get sick; I don’t want anyone getting sick. But we’ll make it through. The government and doctors are doing all they can, just sit tight and wait it out. I’m gonna repeat everything that you’ve probably already heard. Don’t go out unless you have to. Keep your distance. Isolate yourself if you’re sick. And for pity’s sake WASH YOUR HANDS!!! If there’s one good thing that’ll come out of this, people will finally take hand washing seriously. I dearly hope...
But enough about that. I’m almost finished with the changes to Legend of the Sword Bearer Chapter 1, and I’ll be posting it for free here so anyone can read it. It’ll be nice to have something fun to read during self-isolation.
The weather is absolutely fantastic today. Nice warm sunshine, not too cold, and no wind. Today I heard a falcon calling. There’s a mated pair that nests in the maple trees every year. I don’t recall hearing them this early in the season though; they normally don’t start until April. They make such a racket, screaming practically from dawn until dusk!
I’ll be able to till my garden soon, I hope. As long as it doesn’t snow again. I’m looking forward to that.
Getting back to the earlier topic, please don’t panic. There’s every reason to be optimistic. From the doctors I’ve read recently, we’re coming to the other side of this. Fatality rates are dropping, and soon enough, we’ll have this under control. Thanks for reading, and stay clean.
