“What I miss though, most of all”
Can’t get flour or yeast
Or even toilet tissue.
But shortages of goods
Are not at all my issue.
Masks, long lines, no films,
I can endure these trials.
What I miss though, most of all,
Is seeing people’s smiles.
— Laura R Fliegner

I’m retired and miss my new found ability to casually make plans to see retired friends, after so many years of no time to see them when I was working. Oh the irony.
That’s so true!
