Once things begin to open up again. When kids can again climb around on playgrounds, after being let out from classrooms where they gathered to learn...when the stores are stocked well and friends can hug again.

Did you ever think we'd be without such ordinary things?
I want to sit in my favorite coffee shop, eating a decadent pastry and sipping my Americano espresso. I want to hug everyone after church. I want to be in a crowded studio making something in clay, grinning at jokes being told.
My original guess (back when I started wearing a mask at the dentist office in February) was things would be changing and might last till Easter. Now I'm not sure Mother's Day will suffice. I'm still on the optimistic side however. Yet still, the flu epidemic of 1918-19 had a second bout come through after the survivors got well. More people got sick. So we need to be wary.
OK, let's post Christmas as possibly returning to normal. What do you think?
