Such a strange Easter

Social distancing, we call it now. Everybody’s tired of it, and everybody’s putting up with it.

As recently as six weeks ago, we didn’t imagine “attending” the Easter morning service by sitting in the living room watching a laptop, following along with a bulletin downloaded from the internet and printed on a home printer.

And then there used to be Easter egg hunts for children, back in the olden days. Remember Easter egg hunts? They didn’t happen this year, so instead my town held a bear hunt…people were asked to put teddy bears someplace where they could be seen from the street so that parents could walk or drive around with their kids and try to spot the bears.

He’s a very very tiny bear, but he was the only one in the house. And I’ll never know whether or not anybody spotted him.
