Welcome, 2021

Happy New Year! Here’s hoping this year will be brighter than the ugliness of 2020.

Unfortunately, the news is still bad for Covid-19, and experts say we’re in for a dark winter. Yet vaccines are being distributed, so hope is here for some people, and in the distance for the rest of us.

My family and I have hunkered down for months and worn masks when we venture out. And we’re ready to continue doing that. Certainly, I miss getting together with family outside of the house, and seeing them without masks. And hugging them. And hugging friends. But we understand the safety of holding off on those activities. Which will feel sweeter when we can do them with less risk.

I wish you good health and happiness in this new year.
