Do you remember when you asked someone, “How are you doing” (Or for my UK friends, “Are you Alright?”), the default answer was, “Good”?  Have you noticed these past several years the default has switched to “busy”? Busy. There is much to be said about slowing down during regular times but with a global pandemic at our door, we are forced to slow down. There’s no choice now, with the exception of our frontline…
