I try to talk with my friends, acquaintances and colleagues about the present year. “How are you?!” “Great!” “Fine” “So good to see you!” We go through the basic rhetoric as we each mumble with a hidden smiles and squinty eyes beneath our mandatory face masks. (Can you tell I’m trying to smile at you?)”... Continue Reading →

Sometimes the struggle to find the right words seems impossible. The moments when you aren’t sure what to say so it seems easier to simply stay quiet.
