Sign Of The Times

This is an odd moment in time with America mostly on pause. I spent an afternoon in our little town documenting the notices posted in windows. The signs of our times.

So many stores and shops are closed. Non-essential business have been shuttered.

There’s some restaurants open, but you can’t sit inside to eat.

Businesses are asked to limited the number of people in the store.

Others have people queuing up in lines outside.

And there’s lots of reminders about how we should behave.

Lunch counters are empty. Schools are vacant.

Donations of clothes have ceased, but the food banks are busy.

Some signs offer prayers. Others remind us to pray at home.

Let’s hope this is a once-in-a-lifetime event. I don’t ever want to see the signs of this time again.

It is surreal Rich! I have been doing OK because I’m going to work daily. Watching Tim’s angst over Moore Jewelry is hard, but he is working through that too. The drone shots of empty parking lots, street and highways upset me the most!

Oh man, it’s hard not to be despondent! Think happy thoughts! And stay safe 💖

Great collection for our bordering on dystopian times…or so it seems at times. Glad to see you’re still snapping pictures, Richie! — Beth

It sure is strange out there, Beth.
