Sanctuary: A Feeling, not a Place
Join Becky’s July Square Perspective #15.
Only one rule, the image must be square.
I’ve been away from home for five months now so I have been passing the time with mobile pastimes, such as genealogy and photography. Going through the coronavirus pandemic with my sister while she recovers from unrelated medical issues has been great for both of use. Staying at home gets old, but doing it with someone else helps save one’s sanity.
I don’t have pets at home but for the last few months I have been bonding with Cleo the cat and Tortuga the desert tortoise. Cleo has made the grass catcher on the lawnmower her favorite sitting place. We don’t know why she loves it so much. Tortuga loves eating rose petals after his daily lettuce and fruit.
Working on the family tree has been possible through Ancestry. I love discovering new facts or documents related to my ancestors.
Being confined to a small area, I have taken to photographing tree bark and fence patterns. Funny the things you can see when you really look. Flowers are also favorites subjects. Something is always blooming in California. I’ve been using my smart phone. I haven’t picked up my DSLR in 5 months.
During the pandemic, I am staying with one of my sisters in southern California. She has a lovely cat, Cleo, of whom I’ve become quite fond. She actually still qualifies as a kitten, being about nine months old.

Taking a walk in my sister’s neighborhood, we ran into these two young dinos handing out excess toilet paper. Luckily, we had a sufficient supply. Humor and laughter is so important in this time of great stress. They made my day. Bravo.
