The pandemic 2020

We had such great plans and things were rolling along like they do. We were completing all tasks and getting ready for a summer holiday break. We had lulled ourselves into a false sense of security.

Almost everything changed with a Public Health directive to shelter in place or isolate at home. COVID – 19 had arrived. Businesses, colleagues, friends and family members were asked to submit to voluntary lock-down. The virus put a stop to almost everything.

Looking back, I realize we were in shock for the first few weeks of our lock-down. The shock was followed by anxiety and confusion. We’re still uncertain about the possible aftershocks. Another spike? Global recession or depression? More social and political unrest?

One thing I know for sure. I’ll never return to a 9 to 5 office job. Contract work, flex hours and working from home all suit me just fine.

In the midst of the confusion, we are now looking to identify new new opportunities and creative solutions to “live well, boldly, lovingly, in a world that we will never ‘fully’ understand, let alone control.” Rupert Read iac news.

Check back in from time to time. Things keep changing and evolving on a weekly basis. I’ll soon post information about local programs and events.
