If you are reading this, so did you. It's not without a cost. I have had friends named Henry and Al and Ted and .... and .... and.... taken too early because of COVID.
I have a former boss who shared the loss of her brother with me. We can say it is part of life and those who were perhaps compromised already were a casualty....but they were taken before their time and way before we were ready.
I know......The folks I have lost would say....live!
I would too in their spiritual shoes.
I'm sorry I just had to take a moment there to cry a little. Because that is exactly what those folks would say. Don't shed a tear for me, embrace me with living!
Anyone who lost a single day lost a lifetime!
Sorry... this has been a tough year.
But I'm feeling like a bit of normal is creeping back. Suddenly new things are happening and old things are returning. This past week I witnessed a park full of folks braving the rain to listen to the blues an fill their bellies with BBQ, I saw a flag retirement ceremony, a century plus old band perform and just a little sign that we beat a pandemic overall..... I still miss my friends though. I really miss my friends!
All this diatribe aside, we are on the plus side toward normal again I hope, and in this vein, we've created a calendar of events we hope to grow and grow.

There is so much life to live!
