** We're asking for patience & kindness from our community and wishing our 121 Vance Street project partners much luck with the start of demolition soon. **
Around 7am this morning, Ken took this photo on his way to work. By itself, it's a photo of a dumpster in a vacant parking lot, a quiet moment in downtown Clinton, NC. For me, seeing this photo, I'm hopeful for a brighter future.
I'm also feeling nervous, scared, sad and praying for the safety and health of everyone.
I'm saddened by the many lives lost and impacted by Covid19 and SARS-CoV-2.
I'm relying on experiences of past critical public health events that Ken and I have shared, working together in medicine and health care. And this reminds us, we're a couple of science geeks.
I'm trying to stay positive during this global pandemic.
I'm holding onto small & big sources of joy.
I'm making art.
I'm feeling lucky to have another day.
And I'm happy to see Ken come home at the end of each day. Our kids make me laugh and smile, always.
** We are grateful to have the love and support of family, friends, and a wonderful community. We miss seeing everyone. We're here, if there's anything we can possibly do for you. **
Please continue to take care of one another and stay well ❤️
