What do you miss the most about the outside world? Conversely, what do you like the most about social isolation? 

Feel free to write a few words or upload a photo, video, or any other creative snapshot of your Stuck at Home life.

Hello everyone, my name is Frank, I am the moderator of this Story Share page for Stuck at Home (together). I'm extremely excited about this new forum and to see what you all have to say, but there are a few posts from the last version of Story Share that I want to make sure we don't lose. I'll be posting them below:

Rosaline C wrote that she misses... 

"The sound of crashing waves and deep breaths of salty, ocean air walking my favourite beach in Donegal, Ireland"

But...

"I am finally getting around to working on a personal website, writing about life in Ireland. It is http://rosalinecallaghan.com&source=gmail&ust=1586024319015000&usg=AFQjCNHnPFCu79HVPpmLWAiXw4a-z3g9c Q">rosalinecallaghan.com. It is a work of love and should be well completed by the time I finish my 12 weeks at home. I have to shield as I have hereditary amyloidosis and highly vulnerable. Love to you all. Stay safe.”

“The lack of physical activity and personal contacts, particularly dance classes with friends.”

But she's liked... 

"Not being overextended or racing just to keep abreast. Choosing what I think is important and pushing myself to do THAT."

I really love the image of the sun setting (or maybe rising?) against the horizon where sky meets the water. Both calming and reassuring. Thanks Phil M.! Lets see some more! 😀

@frank These posts are great! I notice that pets have been a theme in this thread. Glad people are finding outlets during this time...

I've missed my routine of working from coffee shops where I can enjoy a cup of coffee and see friends. But, I'm happy to be spending more time outside with my dog Kiko!

I miss the simplicity of stepping out my door... not having to worry about sanitizers and masks... and seeing random people smiling when walking down the street (now you have to see it in their eyes).  But I do like zoom meetings and seeing everyone's home in the background... a little glimpse into their personal lives. And keeping with the dog theme of others in the group, I also like hanging with Brody 🙂

One thing I really appreciate is that people have been able to maintain their sense of humor, despite everything that is going on, and all the stress!
