Some light in the dark – positive news amidst the pandemic #coronavirus

In the first couple of weeks of The Great Lockdown, I have spent too much time on the news feeds obsessively reading the news and feeding my fears of uncertainty and missing out. Once the panic subsided, I have cut the news intake to preserve my sanity. I now try to check the news no more than once a day and sometimes forget to do so. I started collecting positive news in the midst of the pandemic. Here are some that caught my attention. Add links in the comment if you have others to share. Stay safe and stay sane, fellow nomads!

      Absolutely, Beth! In the news we normally see only what various nutjobs of different degrees of evil are up to, it’s nice to see the opposite.
