March 31 X marks the spotThis week, while I was shopping, I ran into some more changes in my local market. I was greeted at the door with an offering of an alcohol wipe to use to wipe the shopping cart. As I traveled down each isle, I was told there were signs limiting many items. Paper products, liquid soap, soups and canned meat were limited to two to four items per customer. There was no fresh meat displayed but fresh fish was available. Most of the customers were located in the dairy and fresh vegetable areas. There were few choices of bread products.Of course, Since I am blind, I had to be told about the changes.There were small X’s on the floor to mark a safe distance while waiting in lines. The store that I had shopped in for years was a mine field of new hazards and rules.As I stood on my designated X, I realized I was at a crossroad in my response to this life change. I could go along with each change without complaint or do a positive act to make my small part of the world better.I decided to smile and nod or greet people when I am outside. and for my writing, I will celebrate National Poetry Month in April by writing poems that inspire , entertain and bring a smile to readers.Each of us are at that crossroad. What direction will you take ?
