This issue of The Hues — I will be honest with you — is coming out
one week late, something that always makes me pretty depressed. I
keep trying to look at the bright side. The Hues is still being
published and gaining a greater circulation in the places we are
placing them. I am grateful!
But it is harder to put out an issue during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Working in isolation makes it more difficult and it actually takes
more time to produce each article.

As a community newspaper, part of the energy of the paper comes
from the interactions I and other associated with the paper have
with community members. I’m a hugging kind of person. And the
interactions and body language and smiles and whispers of ‘Thank
you’ do make a difference. It is the community life that creates the
stories and I just trail behind trying to record it all. Through the
events and
other things that are happening in the community — or
even story ideas communicated in passing —a stream of story ideas
come my way and it is impossible to capture them all.

But now, none of that is happening. There is no talking and hugging
and shaking hands. Many organizations and individuals are
hunkered down until it is safer to come outside and I don’t blame
them. I just found out one of my nephews, a healthcare worker, had
contracted COVID-19 and thought he was over it, but now has
pneumonia. We are all concerned for him.

And so somewhat, I sit in intellectual isolation. Now I have to
remember what went on last year and I have to come up with 90
percent of the story ideas.
