Overstepping a Boundary

8th April 2020

Isolation is aloneness that feels forced upon you, like a punishment. Solitude is aloneness you choose and embrace.”  Jeanne Marie Laskas

Over on GC and my site Weekly Prompts our Wednesday Challenge is Boundaries.

GC spoke about the increased use of Cyberspace during these strange and lonely times of social distancing and isolation. He and I discussed the way group videos, games and group chats are helping to maintain the closeness between families, friends and couples. 

Most of us strive to stay within the guidelines and the rules, but just occasionally, there is a need to move a little further beyond. And as someone pointed out to me earlier today,  it’s good to let the rebel out occasionally, especially when the motives are pure. On the other hand, not everyone sees it that way.

Social Media is rife with pettiness where neighbour complains about neighbour and even about friends.

  1. People complained about your previous post? Oh, Sue…. Well, those cows are adorable in their anti-social distancing. I would love to see this when I wake up each morning.

    Good grief! There was nothing in that post to complain about!! This isolation has way too many people with way too much time on their hands. I’m sorry you felt the need to take your lovely post down. But I am enjoying seeing these pictures of the beautiful cows and sheep. I am NOT enjoying WHY I’m seeing the pictures. 😤😡😤😡😤😡

    You’re better off being one of the farm critters if that’s the kind of neighbors or followers you have!

    1. I knew there was a good reason why I keep taking photos of them!
      Thank you so much Ginger, your lovely comments are appreciated 🙂


  3. Oh! Why? Was it the post about the birthday? I read it on my phone, but didn’t have time to sit down and comment any WP posts until tonight. When I read it earlier today, I thought it was wonderful! It brought joy-tears to my eyes and I thought it was a loving, creative way to celebrate a special person and their birthday. I wish you didn’t take it down. 😦

    Your photos are so wonderful!
    The cows are not moo-ved by what is going on in the world! 😉
    The sheep think the cows are baaa-d! 😉 😛
    Evie is so cute and has the right idea! Stuffed animal friends should still share the love! 🙂

    (((HUGS))) and ❤ 🙂

      1. This is totally off subject, but I often think of Brian (LordBeariOfBow) and wonder what he would say about everything that is going on in the world right now. He would find a way to make us all smile. 🙂

      2. Oh, Carolyn – he’s been on my mind a lot too. He’d have much to say about the ones who are carrying on as normal and gathering in parks etc.

        Then there’s Les (Colonialist) I was saddened to hear of his passing, though I expected it. He too would have lots to say as he always did about South African rule!
        It was through Les that I met EL BOB.

        Thank you, Carolyn. Stay safe 🙂

    Great post Susan. Those folks who complain about your material should be sent out to pasture. But I am sure the animals would drive them from their midst. 🙂
