It's been a year. Whether we should throw up some high fives because we survived or just throw up I'm not sure. I’ve read several reflections on the passing of our one year pandemic anniversary, but I'm not sure I'm ready for any kind of real reflection.

That's right, an actual, legitmate website (that is not my own or someone I'm related to) is going to start publishing some of my writing. Right now, I'll be writing online articles every other week for Shanghai Family magazine. As you might have guessed, it is geared toward expat families living in Shanghai.
