Hope can neither be affirmed nor denied.
Hope is like a path in the countryside:
Originally there was no path - yet, as people are walking all the time in the same spot, a way appears.

Another Sunday and while I'm not lost for words like I was last week, I'm fighting for a good topic. I have this need to write about the pandemic, again.
Like most of you, I'm tired of the politics and especially the stupidity. But, I found the quote above in a great little book, Don't Forget to Sing in the Lifeboats. The title alone describes the situation we're all in. It makes a point that's pretty solid - the importance of having hope. We need to stay focused on being safe and healthy.
A few minutes ago, I was on an IM with my good buddy, Brian Malloy, in Boston. We were talking about the challenge of figuring out what to do today. We all have too much time on our hands, and it's getting harder and harder to come up with something to do that's fun and different.
Sheila and I have breakfast together every morning, and I always ask the same question, "So, what do you have going on today?" And after five months of being hunkered down, we both still laugh!
So, here's the question of the day...What are you doing that's fun, safe, and different? Feel free to share, because we're all in the same boat!
Meanwhile, wishing all of you a quiet, peaceful, and SAFE day. The pandemic isn't going away, but maybe together we can slow down a few more of the stupid people out there. That path of hope will get stronger if we can get more people on it!
