One of the advantages of a weekly column as opposed to a daily column is that you only have to write once a week. The downside is, by the time the column is published, the situation being addressed can change. When I wrote about COVID two columns ago, I thought that I would have COVID for a few days and then be done with it. It had been almost two weeks and I was still testing positive. Finally, after fourteen days I tested negative. After ten days I was able to go to shul with a mask. However, I needed to continue to isolate for activities that I cannot do with a mask, such as eating and sleeping. The weather has been very comfortable, so I was able to eat outside. I had been sleeping in a small room with a small bed. When I was younger, I could sleep on anything. Age has a funny way of changing people. It is a great feeling knowing that my incarceration is over. I just hope and pray that I do not suffer any lingering effects from COVID. Unfortunately, I know people who still suffer more than a year later.
