Lots and Lots of Thoughts: The Coronavirus Is Upon US

As I sit here in my living room on a Friday night, I consider what I might be doing if it wasn’t for the Coronavirus pandemic.

Daily Readings for Tuesday, March 24th

Thoughts on whether or not to continue social media hiatus

Little did I realize when I began my hiatus from all social media three weeks ago today that we would be in the midst of a worldwide pandemic during that break.
