We do the familiar things. The furniture and umbrellas come in off the deck, the porch. We make soup. We read and draw and cut the last Hydrangeas from the garden. We vote. We prune… But this winter is perilous. The Covid-19 virus is raging around the country and the cases are so numerous that […]
Friends…I saw this quote on my friend Elizabeth’s IG feed and I realized that there is really only this question: what is the world you want to live in? See you after the election…keep in touch.
