As the days kept passing by and the seasons kept changing, they started to feel that the juice they had in the society had no value. Everyone irrespective of their social status was equally at the mercy of the virus. While initially, they were very eager to know more about the pandemic, fatigue started to set in over time making them incurious.
They were tired of all the negativity. But despite this, though there were days when it was bright and sunny outside, they didn’t deem it fit to enjoy themselves when everyone around was struggling to make ends meet.

This week at Lens-Artists, we have a challenge to use either 1 or all the below words and share our clicks:
So here are my shots:
Being comfortable isn’t the way to learn to expand your abilities.
There are basically two types of people. People who accomplish things, and people who claim to have accomplished things. The first group is less crowded.
“Keep up your enthusiasm! There is nothing more contagious than exuberant enthusiasm.”

The last few months have been nothing short of a nightmare for millions across the planet first with the coronavirus and then with the ensuing effects on the economy, poverty and more.
Many of us have been extremely lucky and privileged to be able to pursue our interests and also do things which we kept delaying for a long time. And this has given me nothing but utmost happiness.
I have been blogging since 2009. But for the last few years, my blogging frequency had dipped quite dramatically due to a variety of factors including me just being plain lazy. But just as the pandemic struck, I began the April A to Z Blogging challenge which involved me blogging everyday in April except the Sundays. And since then I have just continued on and on.
Some statistics – 279 out of my 1093 blog posts have been published since April 2020. My Alexa blog rank has jumped from 870,000 to about 80,000 odd. My subscribers have increased. The bounce rates are low and the time spent on my website at about 13 odd minutes is at an all time high.
In this period, I also published my first solo e-book of short stories on Blogchatter – An online blogging platform which connects a variety of bloggers and writers. The dream to publish a book had always been there but I guess I just wasn’t taking the steps to make it a reality. My next goal is to get it up on the Amazon Kindle Store as soon as possible.
I guess the pandemic has taught me that anything is possible if one has the will power and determination to stay at it.
We all have our favourite places where we feel that sense of relaxation and peace which we long for especially to escape our busy day-to-day lives.
Don’t we always long to escape from all the pollution and excessive traffic?
Don’t we dream of breathing fresh air and getting a chance to introspect especially in a quiet surrounding?
Don’t we dream of the days when we don’t have to actually breathe carbon monoxide and all the other noxious gases out there?
