It’s a Strange Calm
The family gathering was a bit smaller than usual this year. Not because of Covid, but because they could not make it for other personal reasons. It also felt like something was off, more tense, quiet, and perfunctory. The food was excellent, and the weather was beyond perfect, but still something was off.
It will be a couple months before I see them all again. Perhaps by then things will start to seem more normal… whatever normal may be.
Thanks for stopping by. I shouldn’t have to tell you that our submission page is available, but feel free to drop off a couple of jokes.
