Life has gotten much more complicated. We have important anti-racist movement protesting, civil unrest, and a pandemic going on. Today I took a family member to the doctor in Oakland and I was unable to wait in the waiting room because they are only allowing patients inside due to COVID-19. The office is boarded up to protect it from potential looting.
We are facing many challenges and sometimes we just have to take care of regular life concerns in an environment that not regular at all. Patience is thin and yet ever more necessary to navigate life these days.
