Remembering

They say that once you learn how to ride a bike, you never forget.  All over the neighborhood, I see folks going for bike rides -- kids, parents, grandparents, people who haven't gotten out on those bikes in years.  It all comes back.  The joy of coasting through a soft turn, the breeze on your face -- those are some of the season's great pleasures.

I think we did forget how to ride our bikes until this COVID epidemic.  But there are other things that we are remembering.

We are remembering that it really feels great to get an actual letter from a friend through the U.S. Mail.

We are remembering that coffee tastes better with real cream.

We are remembering that the best way to stay healthy is to be healthy, and that the body is its own best doctor.

We are remembering that we can do without that brand, that flavor, maybe that item altogether.

We are remembering that we are, and always have been, in this together.

What are you remembering?  What has come back to you?
