I am grateful for a walk around Swan Lake with Cooper and his Scout troop this evening. We all wondered how scouts was going to work during the pandemic, outdoors, in the dark of winter, in masks, six feet apart. As it turns out, it works really well. Being out on a dock on a lake after that walk, it was beautiful out there. Kids socialized, as did us grownups. The moonlight sparkled off the lake and cast moonshadows after bestowing its glow on the reeds in the marsh. Truth be told, I’d take that over a meeting at the scout hall, any day.
