You’ve all heard the adage, “If you don’t like the weath­er now, just wait 5 min­utes and it’ll change.” On this day it seemed like we were get­ting all the weath­er, all at once. I took this panoram­ic with my iPhone while stand­ing in the field in front of our house, look­ing down the val­ley to where the dri­ve­way would even­tu­al­ly meet the paved road.

Usually, a land­scape scene such as this brings a smile to my face; but on this day, just a few months into the pan­dem­ic, it seemed like a visu­al metaphor for what was hap­pen­ing across the globe and the long road ahead. I felt a lit­tle off-bal­ance, and I won­dered what was com­ing next.

A LOT has hap­pened between then and now – grief and joy, friend­ships lost and friend­ships gained, dis­tanc­ing and close­ness. I don’t know about you, but I still feel a lit­tle off-bal­ance, and I won­der what’s com­ing next.
