I wish I could say that I planned this. That I knew we’d be spending more time at home now. That I foresaw a time we’d have time to really look at the walls and the floors and the cracks in the ceiling.
But I didn’t plan this. Didn’t know. Didn’t foresee we’d be putting out a HOME issue of City & Shore just as so many of us were, well, home.
Home where we’ve got time now to really look at the walls and the floors and the cracks in the ceiling. Home where our hearts are for our family, friends and community. Home where we only wish our first responders, public servants and health-care providers could be now, too.
These days will pass, for us and for them. There’s a beginning, middle and end to every story. Even one as big as this one.
For now, we wait and do what we can to help – either by staying home to stop the spread of the virus or to help the community with the essential gifts we have to offer.
And while we wait, while we have time to really look at the walls and the floors and the cracks in the ceiling, we offer this issue of ideas for the home. Something to read while we’re waiting. Waiting, and working, for the happy end to this story.
Because I am planning that.
