Snippets of Time


March 26, 2021

It’s Friday.  My daughter needs to be in the school for that first block class—but today is a half day.  The school is serving as a vaccination site, and they will be on half days for Friday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 

My challenge of finding “something to do” for her eighty-minute block class changed:  I only have forty-five minutes today.

I decide to visit my husband’s office, with my computer in hand.  I gained an extra thirty minutes to write on my next work-in-progress, a fictional story about two young dairy farmers in southern Vermont.  It’s hard to squeeze in this writing—but it’s my silver lining because it’s also fun!   

Silver Linings…

started as my personal response to 2020’s global pandemic of COVID-19.  When I published them locally,  I was surprised by how much people responded to them.


I hope they bring some positivity to you, too, during this unsettling time
