It was the last day of the year, December 31, New Year’s Eve, during the year of the pandemic in 2020 and Harry was on a Zoom video call with friends from church. They were talking about how it had been quite a year in 2020 and what they were hoping for in 2021. People asked Harry for his thoughts, and Harry said, “With the shut downs, social distancing, quarantining, working and schooling from home, prohibition on our usual ways of socializing, it has given people much more leisure time. The introverts have done fine and the extroverts are suffering, but whether an introvert or an extrovert, we’ve had much more leisure time and solitude on our hands. It has been an opportunity for reflection, meditation, and prayer. If this time has brought us into further conscious contact with our Transcendent Source it has been, and will continue to be, a blessing, and if not, it has allowed us to be more conspiratorial, paranoid, depressed, and crazier.”
“How has it gone for you, Harry, ” asked Rhonda.
“Well, I’ve learned that wearing a mask is not a political statement, but an IQ test.”
