In rereading my latest posts, one would not think that the world was anything but perfect. I’ve been writing through the eyes of a first time grandparent as I hold and kiss and caress my little tiny granddaughter. Yes the world is in utter chaos – ongoing pandemic, pulling out of Afghanistan, families and friends divided over politics, vaccines, LBGTQ, abortion, climate change, on and on….

But I’m choosing not to go out to this world but stay safe in a place of love and pure joy with hope that the world might catch up to where I am. After all, I don’t want this little 8 pound bundle of ecstasy to be exposed to what is “out there”. I will do everything in my power to protect her.
