A great post from Travel Tales of Life by Sue Slaght. Sue has been posting fellow bloggers experiences with the pandemic from around the world. This week is from across the United States and she asked me to contribute from Los Angeles.
Sue Slaght – Over the past weeks we have been inviting readers from across the globe to share their COVID-19 stories. We began with views on the pandemic from Thailand, Mexico, Spain and Australia. Last week we gratefully received contributions from Chile, England, Finland and Portugal. Although thousands of miles often separate the writers, one consistent theme rings true. COVID-19 is life altering and we as humanity battle a common foe. This week we welcome contributions from across the United States. Our heartfelt thanks to the authors of these pieces. For those that have provided links to their own blogs or social media we encourage you to visit.
Views of COVID-19 – Across the United States
I love this feature on Sue’s blogsite. I particularly enjoyed reading your post. I’m so glad your wife is OK and you’ve been able to communicate via social media with your family. May you and your loved ones continue to stay safe and well. xo
Thanks Darlene….I so enjoyed yours and all of them. It does reinforce the fact that we are all in this together!! Stay well…my best to you!
LA freeways are never quiet – except now. Crazy times
It’s spooky and erie…take care!!
Wonderful, Kirt! And beautiful surrounds to wait out the crisis – stay well, all the best! 😊
Thank you very much Felipe!! It helps to have some private outdoor space…an oasis shall we say! My best to you and your family!!
I can imagine! We were social distancing Easter with our youngest grandchild, and we told him (7 yrs old) how lucky he was to have a place to play and not have to worry ‘bout being impinged 😊 Enjoy, stay well, and keep that knee moving! 😊
Thanks Felipe….take care!!
I like your backyard Kirt, and more importantly, I’m glad you and your wife are safe after exposure. It is erie to see so many places quiet, but also soothing to my soul. I hope we all learn to live simpler, gentler lives.
Thanks Brad!! The backyard is an oasis from the city!! I support your last comment….be safe and have a great weekend!!
LOL – love it!
The empty highways are so weird!! Is that your backyard?? It’s gorgeous!
Weird especially for Los Angeles. All of the freeways are usually jammed almost 24 hrs a day, truly. Yes, that’s our backyard…an oasis from the city!!

Sue and Dave got a great assemblage of bloggers to air their thoughts. I’m so glad you and your wife are okay! And that you have a beautiful back yard to stay home at.
I loved your article and you also have a beautiful backyard! Thanks for stopping by!
Very cool, Kirt, I love your backyard too!
Thank you so much!! I do prayer and meditation out there every morning with “of course” my cup of coffee!! It is an oasis from the city!
Kirt many thanks for your contribution this week and sharing the collaboration with your audience. Stay safe and very best wishes from Dave and I.
Thanks for the opportunity Sue…much appreciated!! You guys stay safe and my best from Gail and I!!
Hi Kirt! Wow…
I am so happy your wife tested negative and that you and your family are well. This is such a strange time. Your garden is lovely and I say yes to the internet…and I just had my 2nd zoom connection!
Stay well, Kirt. Keep creating 🙂
Thanks Lorrie….glad to hear you are doing well! Stay safe !!
Wow, that shot of the freeway is amazing. And your patio looks lovely! Stay well… 🙂
Thanks Diane and you also! Our patio is my oasis of peace!!
The emptiness is so weird.. Your back yard looks lovely. I bet its lovely sitting out there 🙂 Take care
It is a great spot to mentally regroup! Take care!
To see the freeways of LA empty… it is more surreal than any horror movie. Thanks for sharing this, Kirt. Hugs!
I actually thought “spooking” was a perfect description. 😀
