What a 2 plus years we have lived through: Covid-19’s scourge – so many
monumental challenges second by second, minute by minute,
hour by hour, day by day, month by month – you get the picture!

been busy creating wonderful stories, poems, and essays that highlight narratives of
resilience, optimal living and ‘TRUE GRIT.’
