Hi, Skarpi,

Thanks for asking! bbc, checking in from Troy, New York. Although things are not as bad (at least, yet) here as they are in & around NYC, as of a couple of days ago, we had nearly 80 confirmed cases & 5 deaths in my county. I have been sheltering alone in my apartment since March 13 & am doing well. I have a good stock of food & supplies & am just trying to stay out of the way. Contact by phone & Internet is invaluable! I’ve been able to get deliveries of food & my 2 sons are willing to help out if I need them. Both of them are able to work from home—David from his computer company & Jay from NYS Taxation, taking tax questions by phone & helping maintain the 24-hour COVID-19 hotline. Surprisingly, my days seem quite full & I am in a good frame of mind, although I’d like to be out, photographing the Spring wildflowers. I find myself living more mindfully, aware of & thankful for each thing in my life. As time passes in this new normal, I’m feeling that good can come from our current situation if we are willing to let it! Be at peace, my friends! Stay safe & well!

Love,

Barbara
