I went out today and picked items for the house and, later on,  food. The place I went to had plenty of water and toilet paper. While I waited for the subway home, I scanned the scene on the elevated. Van Cortlandt Park was two stops north. In high school, I ran cross country races there. I have visited the park from time to time.

The park is one place I feel a sense of peace. I'm drawn by the beauty of the foliage much of the year. I reminded me of my childhood when I always wandered into the woods. There are days that I still yearn to those childhood days. Don't know if there's a pathway but I will find out. I yearn for quiet spaces because I feel the freedom to be Genevieve. 

My journey is lonely at times but I don't feel that way. I'm quirky in that I can be alone for days at a time and enjoy it. I admit that I'm not PC but, then again, I am different. Doing what's not expected. My life has been a trip thus far. Looking ahead it going to get even stranger.

I'm a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. the great point is to bring them the real facts.

I went downtown today and it was eerily quiet. Times Square isn't quiet at 3 in the morning on a weekday.  With the city on lockdown, many people are working from home or not at all. Restaurants and bars are closed. so are movies, theaters, churches, and other venues where people will congregate. The coronavirus pandemic has affected how we go about our daily.

Some might say that it's the new normal. I like to think of this as a time we need to choose who we want to be as human beings. It will be on each individual to do this soul searching. Things will not be the same when this crisis passes.

Don't ever remember New York City on lockdown. Many businesses are closed or doing limited work. There's only delivery and take out at restaurants and eateries. I have been out but on a limited basis. Can't keep me down. Been keeping in contact with family and friends. 

It's also a good time for quiet assessment and reflection. Which things are really important and which are not. Maybe those projects long put off can be done. There's much to consider. This is a bridge I don't believe any of us has crossed. 

Follow all the directions by medical folks 

Don't be in close proximity to people who are sick. See a doctor if you have the symptoms.

Mental health is just as important. See a therapist if you feel triggered or depressed.

Drink plenty of water, vegetable, and fruit juices 

Keep in contact with family, friends, and neighbors.


This will be over soon enough.

As a huge sports fan, I'm disappointed that the men and women's basketball tournaments were cancelled. So were spring training in baseball, hockey, and pro basketball. In my own famous words, I'LL MANAGE.

LGBTQ and non-conforming people will not be counted in the 2020 census. This is wrong and the definition of discrimination.


There's no excuse for the young people not knowing who the heroes or heroines are or were.

I have been reading about the symptoms of coronavirus.  Unfortunately, some people have died. In many cases, the persons who died had other medical conditions. You also had some idiots hating on Chinese people because the virus originated from China. 

Like all illnesses, rest, drink fluids,  see the doctor if you have difficulty breathing, which is one of the symptoms. Also, people need to calm down and stop overreacting, which exasperates the current situation. It will pass.  


With Elizabeth Warren dropping out of the Democratic primary that leaves Dems with two old white men. If Joe Biden wins the Democratic nomination it tells me that people want the same old, same old. Bernie Sanders is too leftist for some. Biden is a safe choice, more establishment. 

I will not vote for either one of them. President Trump will win again. Sorry to say that, Democrats. If you wanted REAL change these two men wouldn't be your choice. Elizabeth Warren and the other candidates weren't any better. They were all bad. Shades of 2016 with the Republican nominees.

Joe Biden needed a big showing in the South Carolina primary and he got it big time. It has signaled the end of the line for Pete Buttigieg and possibly Amy Klobuchar. Looks like Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren.

To me, SouthCarolina Democrats took the safe route in choosing Biden. Sanders's socialist views won't cut it anywhere in the South. Warren may be hurt by the fact that she has not taken advantage of her early success. 

What this shows me is that Americans aren't willing to roll the dice on an outsider like the Republicans did with Donald Trump in 2016. It was a huge gamble and it paid off. I have stated many times that the reason Mr. Trump was chosen was that people were tired of the status quo.  Mr. Biden IS the status quo and that's a shame because there are better candidates out there. Status quo doesn't cut much anymore, in my opinion.
