I took a day off of work today. It was a needed break for me. A time to step out of the house and breath some fresh air. And I was lucky enough to have a day on my schedule that didn't have any predetermined tasks that I had to accomplish AND it was a bright and sunny day and not very cold.

So, I took Sarah with me because she is out of school and she doesn't have any work right now.

We first drove down to Scioto Grove Metro Park in Grove City and wandered around their trails, taking pictures of the river and the woods. After that we drove back into Columbus and hung out on the Scioto Mile. We ate some lunch and relaxed in the sun. And we talked about many different things. The news. Culture. Life. Friends. School. 

It was so nice to be out and away from my routine and my home--even for a few hours. We wore masks when we went inside. We social distances. We remarked at how silent and empty the downtown area seemed on a day like this. We saw bikers and walkers and families. But the OSU neighborhood was eerily empty and still.

Such is life in the time of coronavirus.

I hope that each of you has an opportunity soon to step away from your responsibilities and give yourself a moment to recharge. It felt good for me to do so today.

Glad you and Sarah were able to get out of the house. Those are some beautiful and restful photos.
