How’s everybody doing? We’re still managing to keep spirits relatively up in our house. But man if the hand lotion runs out, it’s gonna get ugly.
I’m getting ready to go outside on a beautiful sunny day and grill some portobello mushrooms and Beyond Burgers. I just took a 2-mile walk and listened to a dharma talk by Thich Nhat Hanh while I was doing it. Hopefully that will be somewhat of an antidote to the poison I read online today.
Along those lines, let me just insert a quick plug here for the World Health Organization. I have been a volunteer for their Global Clinical Practice Network for some time. Their work has always been crucial and is even more so right now. Given the horrifying decision which was just made to cut them off from a major funding source, I made a financial contribution to them today, which you can do here. I know many people are suffering financially right now, but if you are fortunate enough to be able to make a contribution, it’s a good way to channel your disgust and outrage into some tangible action.
Now, on to the puzzle. This one is a 4/5 difficulty Free Association and I made it just for you. I hope you like it. Until next time!
