As goes the Jimmy Buffett song goes,
“Better days are in the cards I feel
I feel it in the changing winds
I feel it when I fly
So talk to me
Listen to this story
I’ve been around enough to know
That there’s more than meets the eye”
Seems appropriate for a school year that is starting out amidst uncertainty over what will be the norm, with a virus that won’t just go away, with people who are desperate for some bit of the familiar in still unfamiliar times.
The last 18 months have been really unique and challenging, but I think the best we can do is realize that all things do pass. Tomorrow might not be better than today, in fact, it might be worse – but every day offers the possibility of things getting better, and eventually the better days offset the worse. As we move into the 2021-22 school year, watch out for each other, be kind, and if I can help, reach out to me.
