is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble
pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these
are what we stay alive for. think the question for all of us at this time of the pandemic is: What is saving you lately?

It reminds me to stay in a place of wonder and helps me remember: We can get through this!
Here is a reflection which includes poetry of comfort, humor and connection during these strange times.
