“We live in strange times. We also live in strange places, each in a universe of our own. The people with with whom we populate our universe are the shadows of whole other universes interacting with our own.”
- Douglas Adams
I am always looking for an opportunity to quote the great author Douglas Adams. Lately it’s become a more frequent occurrence. These are strange times — 2020 that is. It’s been both a time of blessings and curses. Between COVID-19 and the October Ice Storm, we have all faced challenges. Three weeks after the ice storm passed through Central Oklahoma, thousands of homes and businesses (including my business) remain without power. The brilliant Alex Trebek joins the list of those we lost in this year of plague and hardship. Political unrest remains as the election process continues and votes are being tallied. I suffered my own personal “tragedy” a month ago, when I fell and broke my shoulder.
Yet this has been a year with many redeeming qualities. I traveled to Honduras and Mexico and ticked off a few items on my bucket list. I published my first book, with more still
to follow. I’ve had time with my family to connect and I’m recovering quickly from my injuries.
To everything there is a season, and this too shall pass. It may pass like a kidney stone...but it will pass.
