2020 is still churning out chaos like no other year. Big snowstorms (OK, TX and NM, all along our route home), the Nth hurricane of the year hitting NOLA (where my friend Jon lives), fires in densely-populated OC (where my friend Andrew lives), new all-time highs for US COVID infections, and of course the constant background of the Election of the Century. I think the word “shitstorm” was coined for just this moment.
And yet I’m fairly calm and sanguine about it all. I think knowing that this crew (above and below) is safe and sound has much to do with that. Plus I’m getting better all the time at not stressing about the things I can’t change.
