|The mornings are misty, the days bright and sunny. Red and gold abound as the colours of Autumn decorate nature’s palette here in New England. I realised this morning I had been too busy to notice and too distracted by a myriad of tasks to just pause and take in the wonders of the world.
These are unusual times and we are all experiencing the new and the challenging. I have become one of those people focused on curve flattening, transmission, spreading rates and the benefits of hand washing. I miss the comfort of human contact – on the other hand, I am overwhelmed by the special and many ways that friends, family and colleagues from around the world have reached out to share their digital support in these difficult times. The uplifting and energising power of humour and laughter cannot be underestimated. And of course when all else fails – Maltesers!
