Wow! Dennett. I haven’t really spent the time to read up on the vaccine but this is devastating to read, although not full surprised.

Where I live, most people are at least wearing masks. Still there are others who think that the virus isn’t real enough and continue to go on vacations, travel, fly, visit restaurants, have parties and see friends.

What’s helped me is to focus on my two young adult kids and myself. I had to let go of my office space and fortunately have been able to offer counseling online but that’s taken the last 6 months to show folks, it’s not so bad! Phew. But I had to do it because I wasn’t safe and people weren’t being safe, including the office I worked in. Then I really worried, what if I passed the virus onto one of my clients or co-workers? What if I brought the virus home to my kids? My sweet Copper? I didn’t mean to go down the rabbit hole of what-ifs but that’s a frequent go-to of mine!!

Nevertheless, focusing on what I can do to keep our small pod-like circle safe, is where my heart also seems to go.
