The gifts have all been wrapped and now all there's to do is wait, and wait and...wait.

In New York City the weather is getting cooler and cooler, almost feel like December :) Wherever you spend Christmas I wish for you and yours to be safe; please exercise precautions, Covid is still here folks.

And if you're into traditional things, read all about the 12 Days of Christmas, here.

Happy Holidays to all!

NYC: Life after a pandemic

Hello friends,

New York City is trying desperately to go back to normal, but in a city of 10 million people back to normal isn't an easy feat.

The transmission rate has decreased and if more people get vaccinated - particularly NYC - the governor will lift all remaining restrictions, and how wonderful it'd be to have our city back? To see Broadway lit up again? To see Times Square bustling with tourists (yeah, I did just say that)? 

I am encouraged to know that soon New York will be back to its formal glory, though to be honest, I'll miss the quieter streets and subways, lol!

I hope that wherever you call home, you feel safe and encouraged, as well.

Be well!

Climate change, pollution, water scarcity; these are just a few issues we face today as a society. 

Below is a list of simple things we can do to celebrate Earth Day on a daily basis:

  • Swap light bulbs
  • Plant a tree
  • Carry your own water bottle
  • Switch to eco-friendly cleaning materials
  • Bike-to-work or carpool

Happy Earth Day!
