My Pandemic Year II: November 2021

This week I celebrated Dia de los Muertos, in person, at a couple of events in Seattle. I enjoyed dancing and food at the Waterfront event on October 23, and I had the entire room to myself to view the ofrendas at the Seattle Center on November 2. I learned a lot this year, which I have detailed on my travel blog.

This week we also reached a new milestone – 750,000+ deaths in the US, which still leads the world in COVID-19 fatalities. There is no accounting for lives lost for those who could not find medical care because our hospitals were full of COVID-19 cases.

I am thankful for those who are masked, vaxxed, and socially distanced. There is cautious optimism that this winter will not be as harsh as the last. Hope buoys all.
