Spring is here! Had a relatively warm winter and not much snow. We shoveled less but did not get the benefits from snow banked home or reflection from the snow on sunny days. I wonder if there will be a water shortage this Spring and Summer.

We are in our second year of covid-19 event. We are wearing masks, and now we have a vaccine. It seems like this surreal time has been going on forever!  My local bank opened its lobby but gone was the familiar receptionist kiosk in the lobby, never to return. The space looks spacious and has a well-designed floor plan.  I am seeing the beginning of the “new normal”. The aftermath of the corona virus period will be bringing its own new normal that we will have to work out and it will not necessarily be a smooth ride.

The good news is perhaps we are returning to valuing the importance of family, friends and community and kindness, enjoying the moment and not always in a rush. It seems that with each difficult time there are lessons to be learned.
