So much has changed in my city. One-by-one local businesses, especially restaurants, are closing. Places that were in business for decades. Soon we’ll have nothing but McDonald’s and Walmart 😕

And, I wonder when and if we will ever feel safe enough to socialize. My husband and I entertained often and now, I get the shivers to think of guests in our house. We used to take annual vacations in Manhattan, and I can’t imagine ever doing that again.

But, that’s nothing compared to those who have lost their jobs, maybe even their careers, and homes.

Nothing feels familiar anymore 💔

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
