Daily Dose of Beauty: Adding a bit of light to the darkness as we get through the pandemic together.

March 29th, 2020

Is it just me or are the days starting run together in a blur? March 27th, March 28th, March 29th … there is little to distinguish between them, other than the weather and what we made for dinner. Starting today, I’ll name my daily posts more descriptively to fill in the map of where we are and where we’ve been.

I find it interesting that during this crisis people are writing more “in-the-moment.” Many of us typically craft our posts over hours or even days, as we research and compose and edit exactly what we want to say and show. But there’s something enjoyable about tossing aside that aspiration of perfection in favor of sharing our daily thoughts with each other while on this bizarre journey together. There is beauty and humanity in the imperfection.

Today I’m sharing photos of people all over the world with whom I’ve crossed paths, even just for a moment, as I’ve traveled around the world. Their struggle today is no different than mine or yours: try to stay healthy, try to keep your family safe and healthy, and try to find your way through this economically, emotionally and even physically.

I’ll leave you with some of my favorite words of wisdom from an unknown source:

When you have more than you need, build a longer table not a higher fence.

We can share a table, tell stories and enjoy each other’s company, even if we’re social distancing at opposite ends.

Until tomorrow,
Kelly
