Posts at this blog have been light in the last week. My son brought home COVID from college, and apparently during one of his rare exits while he was isolating in his bedroom, I managed to catch it as well. This is my second time around with COVID. So far, it feels much like the first time: like a very severe flu for a couple of days, then another day or two of getting back to full functionality. As I write this, I’m sitting upright, sucking down cough drops, and feeling better–and I’m grateful that for me, at least, it’s not any worse.
