Chances are it's been at least a few months since we had a chat-chit face to face. If we have seen each other recently, hooray for us! Either way, I wanted to reach out and connect with you.
First of all, I hope you and your loved ones are managing to remain healthy, happy & hopeful through the Covid-19 outbreak. Between the pandemic & the global fight for civil rights, this has been a period of rapid change & upheaval for many of us.
