Celebrate Earth Day 2020 with a ‘Virtual’ Walk in the Woods

Cape Ann Wellness

Today is the 50th Anniversary of ‘Earth Day.’  Be sure to spend some time in nature today, in gratitude, as you celebrate this wondrous planet where we all live. We are the earth’s caregivers and protectors, and that was never more evident and important than now. As Astronaut Carl Sagan’s photo demonstrated and spoke of, the earth is but a tiny speck of dust in the Universe. “Everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives,” Sagan later wrote. “On a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”Candy Hansen, a planetary scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory who worked on the Voyager imaging team noted, “It also made me think about how vulnerable our tiny planet is.”

‘Shinrin yoku’ – Japanese ‘Forest Bathing.’ Shinrin in Japanese means “forest,” and yokumeans “bath.” Shinrin-yoku means ‘bathing in’ or ‘taking in’ the…

Destino’s to Close Temporarily and Voluntarily

From Destino’s Facebook page an announcement today Wed April 22 2020

Destino’s Subs & Catering to voluntarily close after employee exposure to Covid-19

Like other essential service providers, we have now seen our associates and family impacted by Covid-19.

Unfortunately, as public health officials have indicated, we expect to see an increase in cases as the virus spreads in our community. Upon learning of the exposure of one of our employees, we have made the decision to close the shop out of concern for our employees and customers.

Our restaurant has been open for take-out and delivery since Governor Baker’s emergency order. We have strictly followed all guidelines from the DPH, CDC and the Gloucester Board of Health. All employees have been following local and state guidelines and have taken the necessary precautions to deep clean and sanitize the shop regularly amid Covid-19 concerns and have been wearing face coverings/gloves for additional protection.

We look forward to reopening after the proper contact tracing protocols have been completed.

Avis R. Murray, Gloucester resident and member of the USTA Hall of Fame, letter to the editor: “Reflecting on times past and present during these trying times”Gloucester Daily Times, April 22, 2020

“During these difficult times, it has given me time to reflect on times past and how blessed we are for the present modern conveniences.

Since I am in the classification of “elderly,” I recall growing up in the late 1930s and early ’40s and how things were then.

It was during World War II and I recall my mom and gram closing curtains at night and we all had to stay indoors as there was a threat of German submarines possibly in our harbor and ready to bomb us. Our parents never showed any fear, so we naturally just thought we were closing our curtains cause it was nighttime.

During those days we had electricity, heat by coal furnace, one radio for entertainment and news, our refrigerator was an ice box and milk was delivered to our door by a milkman. We also had a party line for a telephone — so many rings and it was for us.

Running hot water was a treat during the winter months, as we had a stove that held a tank that was full of oil, which heated our water tank. In the summer seasons we heated a pot of water to have hot water when we bathed.

We saved the grease from cooking as we turned it in and got a couple cents per pound. We also stood in line with our rations to get various foods.

With everything happening in the world right now, we can feel blessed in some ways as we have iPhones, iPads, computers, the internet, TV, lights and heat.

We have brave workers out there to help us daily — health workers, police, firemen, grocery workers, transportation workers, convenience and package store employees, gas station helpers, take out restaurants and coffee shops, volunteers who are delivering food and those who are working to provide the delivery packages for the elderly, and people helping in every way they can.

We need to wear a mask but we can go out and take walks, keeping the 6-foot distance. We can take rides, walk the beaches, ride a bike, and enjoy the fresh air.

We have a stimulus checks coming to us from the government, we have a mayor who is keeping us abreast and caring about our safety, a governor who is so passionate and fighting for all the equipment we need to help those affected by the virus and also equipment to keep all our health workers safe…”
