195: March 2020 / March 2022

It began there,

but we can feel it here.

It’s all people are talking about.

The news is always on.

Would you like to sign up for a special morning briefing?


Are you afraid?


How many news notifications

make for too many notifications?

We’re rescheduling our trip.

It’ll be better by Easter.

We’d be lucky if it was better by Easter.

How do you stop something like this?

Should we tell the children?

Do you think it will reach us?

Reports say there could be an uptick in hate crimes.

Trauma has generational effects.

We need more doctors.

We need more soldiers.

We need more reasons to hope.

Are you afraid?


but that is not all.

I am hopeful.

I am watching.

I am looking for love’s tomorrow.
