Raise Your Hand If…


What you may be reflecting on at this moment are your 2020 travel plans that have been completely hijacked by Covid-19. No amount of foresight or expert planning could have prepared anyone for what the virus brought.  I, for one, would have been planning…

Back to the Soil


Things are looking up.  Easing restrictions across the nation has already impacted lifestyles in communities in a positive way.  It is as if everyone and everything were given a get-up-and-go injection, a new lease on life.   In retrospect, the past couple months of inactivity…

Physical Distancing Challenge


“Change is good,” I like to say.  Why make such a bold statement?  This declaration resonates with those who have adjusted and embraced new ways of doing things since the Covid-19 (Corona Virus) struck.  Arguably, since the pandemic health crisis broke around the world,…
