As I write this, we are all at home in quarantine trying to make the best of what life has thrown at us. I firmly believe that the planet is sending us a message to calm down, stop racing and take a little time to smell the roses. It’s been noted that dolphins aren’t actually frolicking in the canals of Venice as some have stated, but pollution is down worldwide in places like Los Angeles and Beijing China. As a society and a world , Its a bit too late to stop and smell the roses, but at a time like this We should stop and make our lives just a bit more beautiful. In our Featured image Mark D Sikes gives us a beautiful outside garden. I do hope that this will inspire you to stop and appreciate the simple little things around us, as “THERE’S ALWAYS A CALM AFTER A STORM. Photo courtesy of Mark D Sikes.
