Our New Reality

Take it a day at a time

I hope everyone is healthy and hanging in despite the relentless stream of depressing news and statistics.

As much as possible, I am going to steer clear of politics in this space today. I want to take a few minutes to share links that I found useful (or just made me laugh) and thought you would enjoy.

In my anxious moments these last few weeks, I've been drawn back to the simple advice a close friend gave us after a fire upended our life six years ago: take it a day at a time. And that's all we can do now. Stay home. Take a break from the news. Talk to family and friends.

We will get to the other side of this thing.

Be well,
