My message to my team today

Gentle people,

It’s a moment of uncertainty and anxiety (election), piled atop a lengthy period of uncertainty and anxiety (pandemic, police killings, climate change, fires, etc.) with no real end in sight. I get it if you’re distracted. It’s fine—expected, even.

Be kind to yourself. And if you like, let me be kind to you, too. Let me know if you need help. Need to clear the decks? I can help. Need things to do to be distracted? I can help. Need to get something off your chest? I can help.

Don’t want to talk about it? Fine. Want to talk about it? Fine. I’m here for that, either way.

We will gratefully greet the sun in the morning.
