Sameness is an awkward word, isn’t it? But in these pandemic days, it’s the best suited to circumstances in our home.

A few mornings ago I lay awake listening to the morning sounds. Inside there was nothing happening. The cats weren’t even hassling us for morning treats. Outside I could hear rain falling and occasional birdsong.

My mind wandered thinking of what I would do if I got out of bed right then. And it came to me in a flash — the same thing I did yesterday!

Like the identical twins in the above image, our days are identical, or dressed in sameness, in so many ways. And this becomes boring, drains creativity, causes napping (in excess!), and brings on the consumption of comfort foods. It’s a rather humdrum existence. But, as Bob would say, it’s better than the alternative.
