Summering in Place

I would rather celebrate Juneteenth than the Fourth of July.

No–I don’t like barbecues because I don’t eat hot dogs and hamburgers. Nor do I like sitting around a patio table doing nothing but talking.

A friend invited himself to my house. On tap: a salad and green beans and chicken cutlets. A lemon pie for dessert.

While the outbreak continues I will talk in here more about goal-setting and bouncing back from a struggle.

I’m set to attend a Zoom meeting on resume and career help during the pandemic when people are losing jobs.

Will give the details in here about what I learn. As well I attended a webinar on managing stress. I’ll share these tactics next week.

For readers everywhere I wish you buona salute that is good health on the Fourth of July.

As Italians say when we raise our glasses in a toast: Salut!
