Signs of Life - Community
The signs had evolved, “closed due to COVID-19”. A few weeks later a sign appears “Delivery Available.” Shortly after that we saw “Delivery and Curbside Pickup Available”. Now the signs in many places have added “Inside Dining Available.” Are things back to normal? No, they are not. Normal is not what these signs are telling us, these signs are saying something else.

Lessons Learned
The expression “hard-headed” comes to mind as I observe the news. Why do we struggle to learn lessons as we go through life? I have spent some time thinking about the lessons I have learned over the past few months. You probably could make your own list, but I’ll share a few of mine.
