How Do You Cope?

The COVID Virus problem seems to continue. Depending on where you live, you experience a variety of restrictions. So what do you do? How do maintain a sense of normalcy?

Here is a list of my favorite things to do. Perhaps there is something you would like to try.

  1. Go on a hike or walk.


  2. Listen to familiar and new music. Try a virtual choir.
