At this point in my life I am retired, my children love and are loved by caring life partners, and I am at peace with all that bothered me in my younger years. Although it is lonely for an extrovert to cut back her social activities during the pandemic, I find pleasure in reading, writing, and cooking (and eating), probably three of my favorite pastimes. Thank goodness for Zoom. I am grateful for all I have and happy to help those who have less. I feel blessed.
