Some things are different:
The usually teeming streets are deserted
Masks are the norm
The spectacular fireworks shows are no more.
We don't see our friends or opponents when we play bridge. Yesterday there were over 53,000 people playing online at 4:30 central time.
We are donating money to keep our Mexican neighbors fed. There are no food banks and no safety net her. I am thankful for what we have in our state and country.
We have family gatherings and cocktails with friends online instead of in person.
In Mexico beer is not considered essential by the government and there are protests.
The largest drug cartel in Jalisco is passing out food to the people in need. An AK47 and a box of groceries...a bit noncongruent.
Some things stay the same:
The hummingbirds are still coming
Joey, the male Elegant Trogon is nearby.
Sometimes he hides in Laura's deck plants.
His lovely wife Phoebe is seen less frequently.
The gardenia is blooming.
Not all Tequila Sunrises contain alcohol!
Stay safe. Be well and hopefully something good will eventually emerge from these terrible and trying times.
