Silver Linings of This Current Time

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565


If there has been a silver lining to the current imposed California stay-at-home orders, it has been they at least came with the advent of early spring, when flowers and signs of renewal and hope exist.

I found these scenes while out on a walk yesterday morning. I spent a little more than usual time watching the ladybug in the first scene doing what ladybugs do!

I take pictures for the purpose of remembering fond times.  I do not impose copyright restrictions on these photos, so you may feel free to use, or distribute as you wish.  However, should you need a Real Estate Professional in the Greater Sacramento area, I hope you will contact me by email or by visiting my website - Thank You!

Joseph Domino 480-390-6011 - Your observations about the ladybug not seeming to mind, was my thoughts as well.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I think this crisis has made many of us see the world with a little more appreciation. 

Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR - There are alternative universes to life.  Seeing the flowers and nature is a reminder of that! 

Sharon Lee - Yes, I did!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - I had those same thoughts the last few days.  There can be a lot going on in the world. Yet, when we break it down to our own personal lives it can be much simpler. 

Lottie Kendall - They really are.  There was more than one on that periwinkle plant.  I enjoyed just studying them rushing around doing their thing for a few moments. 

Kathy Streib - You've made a simple request.  I'll see what I can do! 

Bob "RealMan" Timm - I have a sister in Idaho who says the same thing about where she is living as well.

Since I am probably "stuck" in Jupiter Florida until maybe August all I ask is open the beaches to walkers and set rules for distancing. With that I can make it through without depression.
