Wear a mask. Wash our hands. Watch our distance. The vigilance of daily life has been tiring. As we move through the day, our attention is always divided.

While we have in common some of the challenges of pandemic living, we are alone with our own responsibility and experience. Such isolation has taken a toll.

We may feel plagued by insecurity and indecision. We may be impatient with ourselves.

We are challenged by loss of many kinds,

                                      by stress,

                                            by conflict.

We are looking for possibilities, for a way forward.
