Peace and Tranquility

Peace and Tranquility

This Spring and Summer our backyard has become a daily oasis for me. Between the rich plant life and the abundant animal life in and around ‘our’ little lake there are few times one cannot be entertained by one or more creatures. Often we just hear the bird songs high in the trees. Such sweet music. Occasionally a bush will start wiggling which is often a tell-tale sign there is a nesting pair of small birds hidden away.

Baseball is just one of numerous activities that we have either given up or which have been stalled or changed since the beginning of 2020. As a longtime baseball fan, the issue of ‘missing baseball’ started months ago when spring training basically didn’t happen. Following that ‘wrench in the gears,’ things got worse. The entire season seemed to have come to an end. In addition to pandemic related causes there were the common, prolonged negotiations about money. Now, finally we may actually have a season opener later this July.
