A recent trip to Alaska has made me appreciate the seasonal change here in the Mid-
Atlantic. Looking around, leaves are on the grass, pavement, everywhere else. They fall like the rain from trees. Right on cue, the natural’s hue is turning from green to yellow to orange-brown. No mistake, it is Autumn.
And this weekend indicates the Fall marathon season has re-started after being shuttered for two years. Is it a sign that we are turning the corner on the Coronavirus pandemic? Perhaps. The numbers seem to suggest so (albeit not soon enough). Eventually the virus will run out its course.
But the impact of the pandemic is long to be felt. Supply chain delays from labor, commodity, and transportation shortages will make this holiday season again less merry and store shelves more empty. Our struggles will continue. Oddly, today is the World Mental Health Day. I wonder if those self-serving politicians care.
Stay safe and have a nice week.
