The seasons have passed and life has continued under COVID. I live in a small mountain village, so most of this goes unnoticed by us out-of-the-way folk.
Ongoing COVID has been the theme – and it’s been a drag for most of us. Was 2020 the worst year ever for you, or did amazing things happen? I hope that whatever inconveniences may have occurred, you still walk and live with your spirits high. It’s important that we don’t get worn down […]
