Dearest Friends,

I have been off of blogging and social media for a personal crisis. I’m sorry to report that my daughter Annika has tested positive for Covid-19, and we, the mom and dad, may have it too, very probable. She went to the Grand Canyon with her friend for spring break, and we think he had it a week prior. It’s been so hard on our children to be isolated and plugged into lifeless computers all day without any social contact, enough sunshine, exercise or normal life. My heart goes out to her and all of them; a lot of kids are struggling now and they’re called C generation for Covid. Tons of children are experiencing inconsolable depression and suicide rates are sadly, very high. Parents are trying to console them and offer some sense of love and normalcy.

Every single month there’s either a fire, grocery store shooting etc., so we’re trying to hold on and impart some type of hope and beauty to them in a world that’s in a very painful and destructive cycle. It’s like a live filming of the theme from: Life is Beautiful. If I make it through, I have many more poignant articles that I want to write from the depth of my recent introspection. I’m only two days away from my vaccine, so it’s been heartbreaking for us, but we have hope and are taking good care. I soberly see everyone and everything as fragile and pure now, with so much appreciation and meaning. Please pray for her, for our family, and please know, we aren’t out of the woods yet and you can still get it 20 days after the vaccine, stay really safe and vigilant all, I will write more and update later.

All my Love and well wishes to all,


🙏🌹🌺 ❤
