At this point in the COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all feeling like the horse that saw the barn: We just want to bolt for the end of this thing. And the closer we get, the harder it is to be patient. But we have to be patient. In that effort, we might do well to remember these words from Thomas Edison:
Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
We won’t fail because we won’t give up. We might let ourselves down. But we’ll never let down those who need our help, our kindness, our generosity, and our faith. We will get through this.

“We’ll redefine ‘normal.'” Will be interesting to see and participate in. Hey, where did you learn to draw like that?
Redefining normal is one of the huge opportunities we now have, Jeff. With so much of the world stopped, maybe we’ll find a way to be judicious and a little bit wiser when we hit the Start button.
The idea of my being able to draw at all reminds me of an episode of Green Acres in which Eb learned to cut hair by taking a correspondence course from MIT — Middle Indiana Tonsorial. I think that peeved Oliver even more than Mr. Kimball and Mr. Haney did.
Thank you for chiming in here, my friend.
