This is the second week that I have been “sheltering in place” with Boris and my spouse (who has been doing the grocery shopping and duly sanitizing household surfaces.) We are probably getting some things wrong, but doing our best.
The stay home order in Philadelphia does allow residents to go outside for, among other things, exercise so long as we observe social distancing rules.
We’ve been having some beautiful weather here, so I’ve been trying to get out when the weather is nice. The streets are nearly deserted. Most of the people we encounter are cheerful and careful to keep the prescribed distance. Perfect for an introvert who just wants to take a walk.
And now for some useful stuff. Press here for information on sites offering longer free trial video streaming. I’ve cut my cable, but I might actually try some of these. I already have tried the live streaming from the Metropolitan Opera. If you think you hate opera, try streaming one of the Met’s operas complete with subtitles. For more information, press here. Or explore some art museums online here.
And finally, a recommendation by my friend Olivia. Even if you are a non-believer, this is sure to lift up your spirits. We are nothing but resilient and need a reminder from time to time.
