Finding wonder in the (confined) world around me.

Well it’s April 14th, day #whothehellknows for the shelter-in-place, hard/soft lockdown, beach closures, water closures and no one leaves their home orders. We are (mostly) all following the requests that the government has made to keep the people on this island safe, healthy and alive.  However, because there are those who just don’t GET IT, the lockdowns never seem to end, and only become more and more confining.

Of course, there are always those few naughty kids who ruin recess for everyone, and as a retired teacher I sincerely apologize for all the times I allowed that to happen. I will admit that towards the end of my career I realized that it really WASN’T fair or smart to expect that the fidgety, restless and impulsive children would really understand why the whole class was punished, and I found other ways to “help” the challenging student figure out why he needed to learn to control his behavior. 

It doesn’t work when there’s a pandemic.

So, since I haven’t been able to walk the beaches to look for treasure and to ease my mind and my soul, I have revisited the tour I took of the Queen’s Botanical Gardens here in Grand Cayman.

I visited one day on my own and was thrilled and shocked to discover amazing beauty along the many paths in the Gardens.  So, I am going to share these images in the hopes that it gives you a brief moment of pleasure.

I think that this “great pause” is one that for me, is giving me even more reason to find things to be happy about each day. I am using this time to really look around me and enjoy the wonder of my world. I hope that you are able to find moments of joy throughout your days.


If you try very hard, you might be able to hear the parrots as they squawked in the trees. 























I hope you can share with me your moments of joy today. #BeSafe #StayHome

I was diagnosed of herpes 3 years, and ever since then i have been taking treatment to prevent outbreaks, burning and blisters, but there was no improvement until i came across testimonies of Dr. VOODOO on how he has been curing different people from different diseases all over the world, then i contacted him. After our conversation he sent me the medicine which i took according to his instructions for up to 2 weeks. After completing the medication i went back to my doctor for another test and the virus was all gone and i was completely cured, since then i have not had any signs of outbreak. I'm so filled with joy. With herbal medication Herpes Virus is 100% curable.

My $755k was stolen by a fake wallet that wouldn't let me withdraw it. Coinbox/vip was their moniker. On my phone, the platforms page opens with the coinbase logo when the browser is first launched. Their dapp wallet's legal description makes mention to Coinbase, and the help centre button links to Coinbase help. But when I contacted Coinbase, they informed me via email that they are not associated with Coinbox. Coinbox is now informing me that I must pay a 175k tax before I can get my money. I opened a case with Bloclwiz right away on their business whatsapp [ +1 (949) 659‑7928 ] platform, and they patched me through to their smart contract hackers. then carried out a smart contract audit right away using digital triangulation. I'm crying right now as I just received a deposit of 35.4 Btc in my trust wallet. im now waiting for the Ethereum gas fee to come through so I can detach the remaining from outsourced wallets. their Email: blokckwiz@gmail.com
