Empty Chairs

One of greatest joys of our lives has been our friends. First Friday Art walks have become a time where we can sit down and talk. Hearing everyone’s stories ties us together. Home becomes much larger than were we live. Home is “place”, where extended families inter act and broaden our vision and our world.

Our lives will be changed forever and going back to former lives is not necessarily a good thing. Some the greatest thinking and scientific and mathematic discoveries took place with the backdrop of the Black Plague in the 1660’s. My maternal grandfather born in the late 1880’s lived through two world wars, the Korean and Viet Nam wars, saw the invention of the car and air plane and the landing on the moon, and the Great Depression once said to me, “the good ol’ days were not so good.”

I don’t want to return to the past. Our future becomes our new lives. We will still make choices that will help form how we will live and who we will be.

This will pass, but we should come out of this a better people, I hope.

Most of all, we miss you all.

See you soon
