How are you doing these days, Duracell?

These past three years have been something of an emotional spin cycle. Father passed away last January, my mother’s been chronically ill due to complications with COPD and kidney disease, my sister’s an utter mess, and the political landscape … yeah. In spite of all that, I’m in a much better place, emotionally and spiritually, than I was many years ago, though somedays I have to make a concentrated effort to see the good things in life. Thanks for asking.

I hope you’ve been doing well for yourself.

I was aware that your father had passed away from catching up on various threads a while ago, but I’m sorry to hear that you’re family’s going through such a tough time. I’m glad that you’re doing better personally. I imagine the pandemic doesn’t help though. Hang in there!

I’ve been doing pretty well overall. I’m still in seminary, so not much has changed since I stopped frequenting this forum, with the exception of a new little brother, who is currently 2 1/2. I’m quite fortunate to be a seminarian with everything that’s going on, since I get to live with 30 other people. We have various restrictions and COVID-protocols, but I don’t feel cooped up and isolated like so many people do.
