Which caught my eye this week.
Jo I’m recovering from a great wedding that ended last night (which isn’t mine!) So directly to the links this morning.
Except to observe that people of all ages seem very happy to mix again.
And the commenters who asked last summer “Will we feel comfortable at a party again, after Covid?” it might have been baffling to see half a dozen retirees crowding into one of those instant photo booths with comedy.
Of course, this does not mean that it was a necessarily wise behavior for its age group in the midst of the continued spread of the Delta, nor to deny that there are limits to the protection against the double-edged vaccine that made it possible. this wedding.
More than the human spirit has strong tendencies to average reversal.
Invest accordingly, I think.
Have a great weekend!
