Our world is a very different place than it was a few weeks ago. And we don’t know what to expect. It’s a strange time but I don’t need to tell you that. Watching television I’ve seen a few images that have stayed in my mind. With such caring and comfort, they express our need to connect, and something about that . . .

There is so much going on. I don’t know about you but I’m glued to the news. Like the rest of the world I’m trying to find out . . . something, anything that will help.
