I doubt anyone needs a reminder that 2020 is bursting with stress: natural disaster, pandemic, and humanity doing ourselves no favors for too many reasons to list. I’m amazed that we all haven’t headed for the hills! Actually, that is exactly what we should do.
I was doing the dishes and listening to the radio, and the topic of conversation was coping with stress. The very first recommendation was to make the inside (your house) feel more like the outside, so perhaps add a houseplant or two. I had to laugh. As Steve would attest, I often say I’m fifteen houseplants into the pandemic. That is no exaggeration. I actually lost one the other day. I have to count when I water, and I was one short. I failed to remember that I put one on the shelf above the toilet where all reasonable people put a plant.
