Welcome to 2022!

I try to spend between thirty and forty minutes several days a week reading about the COVID-19 virus. I want to better understand what they have discovered about the virus and its variants, how it has impacted our lives, our economy, and most importantly how they are progressing on treatments and a path to work our way out of it. 

The question I am seeking to answer is, “How will we get back to a more normal sense of work, play and learning?” The word “endemic” is becoming one of my favorite words or something to hold onto as we continue to work our way through this pandemic. In my simple understanding, endemic means that the virus is more localized and managed through potential weakening of the virus itself, through immunity developed both naturally and medically and through treatments.  We're not there yet, but the presence of the word endemic is becoming more and more present in the writings.  This to me is hope and as I have said before hope is a key factor in happiness and in humanity.

I believe that 2022 will become a year of more normalcy for many in our work, play, and in the learning experience of our children. While in the midst of this latest surge, it may seem far away, I have hope that this too will pass, and spring will come and life will return to a greater sense of what it was prior to March of 2020. Read more
