Omicron Misgivings

Christmas is coming up this Friday and I have done little to prepare or to get into the mood.

There is so much that divides us these days, things that are exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

I am a firm believer in the COVID-19 science and have followed it closely since February 2020 as we could see this epidemiological tsunami sweeping across our land. While I continued to produce a newspaper as well as do the accounting work that my neighborhood center customers and others depended on, I severely adjusted how I did things in order to keep myself and others safe and healthy.
