Let me start the story about day 5 from the night. The morning will come later.
Namely it was raining! Rain produces negative ions! Actually, water in motion produces negative ions! Like the sea waves, waterfalls. Those are, somehow, closed now. Because of public health, so they say. What are the negative ions? According to “WebMD,” they are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical called serotonin, relieving stress, depression, and giving a boost to our everyday energy. To continue from the same site and please read it carefully!
“Generally speaking, negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, Ph.D., author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind-Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.
“They also may protect against germs in the air, resulting in decreased irritation due to inhaling various particles that make you sneeze, cough, or have a throat irritation.”
Really? Do they?
Since we are in the quarantine, some say that it is believed that the beewax candle produces negative ions. Remember, churches and frankincense( Varietate de tamaie, Thimiama, Tamjan, Incenso, Incienso, Buhur, Ladan… ).
To use dear Shakespeare’s quote: ” Something is rotten in the state of …”
(chose the name by yourself).
I was reading, again, a beautiful, highly educational book of late Professor of Georgetown University Carroll Quigley Tragedy and Hope! I warmly recommend it to all that want to educate themselves from the system but outside of it.
So let me share with you a passage from the chapter “The Europe’s Shift to the Twentieth Century.”
“The belief of innate goodness of man had its roots in the eighteen century when it appeared to many that man was born good and free but was everywhere distorted, corrupted and enslaved by bad institutions and conventions. ” Man is born free, yet everywhere he is in chains.” “

It seems that we were losing time for a couple of centuries.
Or the time was used by those who made techniques to enslave us without us noticing it. Nice car, nice wife, one or two mistresses, competition, expansion etc not knowing where to stop! It could be that we lost our instincts and humanity stored in our DNA!
On top of that, I saw a beautiful picture from a friend of mine reflecting the days we know live and asked her if I can use it for Day 5 diary!
“With pleasure,” she replied.
That is the picture from the beginning of this article.
It is accompanied by the following, short and simple, common sensed statement.
“Glasses against the Sun, Hat against the wind, Mask against corona.
Hmm, what to use against human stupidity?”
