An Interview with
by Hon. Lisa Margaret Smith
As I write this message, it is spring, with yellow daffodils and white jonquils already wilted in the garden, cherry trees blooming in blazing pink, and lovely scent-sational lilacs beginning to show their beauty. For more than a year now we have remained apart from one another, from all but immediate family, from festive gatherings, and from solemn proceedings, including funerals of those we have lost. Now, just as the world around us is wakening and everything is lightly covered with green, we, too, are opening our lives, beginning to gather, and reawakening in every way.
Before COVID I had a limited social life, usually I was too tired or too busy to make plans with friends and relatives, but now I feel renewed. Once my husband and I were fully vaccinated, plus the passage of two weeks to develop immunities, we began to socialize, and we have not stopped. It feels like a new beginning-fresh, and full of hope. It is my sincere hope that as we continue to open in society, and as we install new Officers and Directors on June 9, WWBA will also have a fresh, new beginning, full of hope.
