I just re-read the October 2019 message. It was so different then! No virus, masks, closed schools, social distancing, etc. Life was “business as usual.”
Not anymore. We've have had to make major changes is our daily routine; but we got much back. For many, family life became front and center. We had to slow our life’s down. Many have re-discovered the importance of family, friends and neighbors. They found the joy of receiving and sending cards and notes with a kind and simple message of “thinking of you” and the kindness of a wave or a friendly greeting from a voice of friend or stranger.
These are miracles available every day! Although we may not have the usual gatherings at 4th of July, birthdays, Thanksgiving, and major religious holidays, technology is being used to have “virtual” gatherings The same is true in the educational sector.
So creativity is live and well, “virtual” gatherings or classrooms are not a substitute for the real thing but certainly is helpful! Maybe all of this will part of the “new normal”! Fil, the friendly Dragon visit and like us on Face Book
