Seems like world
is in madcap
recovery mode.

Everyone searching
for way
to keep

mind, soul,
and body together.

Brain Fog now
seems to have no
age restrictions.

Mask wearing
no longer
Halloween tradition.

Remember there are
no expiration dates
on love.

double dose
kindness and faith.

weary souls
get through day.
