Is it really July? I finally got out for a haircut. Apartment door to elevator to garage to car (my spouse drove—I don’t drive [despite what someone once said, yes, you can be successful and not drive!]—six blocks to haircut where every precaution was taken. It felt great and I was terrified being out. Meanwhile, COVID-19 cases soar in many U.S. states; meetings and conventions continue to be postponed or to move to a virtual platform; and sports, theater, and most other events are on hold. And more meetings are moving from physical to virtual. Thus we must consider what and how content will be delivered and by whom.

Oh, you bet I want to write about—think about—something else...even something frivolous like summer plans that might include a walk around the block; what you’ve done to manage your “crown of grey” or whether you or someone in your life grew a beard; and how tired you are of take-out food...if you are fortunate enough to have shelter and food—and toilet paper. But as noted by the WHO and written and discussed in many arenas, this virus is likely to never go away. It will eventually be controllable, yet potentially never out of the possibility of contagion. Thus, as I work through and around for clients I continue to write about the issues related to COVID-19, or accurately, SARS-COV2.
