COVID-19 Journal: A quiet reflection

Shelter-in-place has made me reflect on the many little things I take for granted, like green onions.

>> May 28: The beginning of something wonderful
>> May 30: Peeking through
>> May 31: S-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g
>> June 1: The final breakthough

June 9: On the verge of exploding
June 13: Wooooooooooowwwww
June 16: Starburst!
>> There, the next little bud shoots up.

Discover beauty in every day.
