 We moved to Georgia from New York in '94. The boys were in elementary and middle school. In all those years, I've never gotten used to the bizarre shift in the school calendar. School ends in May and reconvenes in August. What savages! 

This was Charlie's last week of vacation. Virtual school starts next wednesday. At first this county was going to start school like nothing had changed. As the COVID numbers climbed unchecked, they switched to virtual classes. Now, knuckling under to political pressure, in-person classes will start later this month.

 I'm about to find out what I am really made of.

i could not. I could not send a child. What all that means
is a nightmare...sending them, a nightmare. Keeping them
safe but AWAY is a nightmare. But i have stopped thinking in
terms that this will at some point be "over". Factor that in, too.

Yay for the virtual and Oh what a fish swims free in those last vacation days. Hi Charlie.


  One moment we are here, the next we are where? Snipped from this life, I like to think, to the place and in the company of our heart's...

Play it again Sam.
