Via Pete Fasciano - 06-13-2021
As I approach [Store Name – Home Depot, Target, CVS] I stop halfway across the parking lot. Turn around and head back to the car. Again.
Forgot my mask. We are at an in-between time where COVID mandates and rules have softened to become guidelines, recommendations – courtesies. While things are getting better and optimism is on the rise, so is confusion. Do I still mask?
To mask, or not to mask – that – is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
the slings and arrows of outrageous infection,
Or to take arms against a sea of virus
And by masking – end them.
To live— to weep
for those now lost upon the shoals of sorry happenstance
and doubt in science that hath shielded us
as guide – to light our pathway out.
We are in the churlish waters of change as our new normal envelopes us. Although I’m fully vaxxed, I keep a mask with me – as a courtesy where socially appropriate. If it makes others feel more comfortable, I’m good with it. A social grace.
We’re continuing to rework our facility to better accommodate how programs will be produced in a future that still carries some unknowns, and we continue to adapt. We adapted our way in. We adapt our way back out. Reopening does not mean simply unlocking the front door. Our Community room will now support hybrid Zoom meetings as an option for our guest groups. Our radio programs will as well. There will also be production practices yet to be defined in our TV studios.
The world is forever changed. We’re just not quite certain as to how. But, with change comes opportunity. We intend to find it and seize it. At the moment, we may be ‘in between’, but we are looking and leaning forward.
And – as always –Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm.And, thank you for watching.
