This Is Getting Too Close To Home

In less than a week, confirmed COVID-19 (Coronavirus) went from hundreds of miles away to 40 miles away to 5 miles away from my home. I fall into the vulnerable population because of my heart and lung conditions, and so I am being extra cautious. I have had bad flus before and recovered so I…

The Weekend Revisit: The Passages Of Time
