Nearly two years into a new property in the country.
A new life.
A new job, then no job again, thanks to COVID-19.
New health challenges, but things are looking up.
Family moved to town, so new relationships beginning to replace those formed in childhood.
A child at Graduate School, so one less at home.
And everything in the shadow of Covid. The 1pm daily briefings are no longer a necessary part of life, but are still an often watched reminder that the virus is still out there in the world. A daily dose of anxiety, and then reassurance of no community transmission.
Meanwhile, life here continues in the space between what has been, and what we hope will return.
