This time of year usually brings cool weather, colorful fall leaves, plans for Halloween parties, and a lot of fun. This year, 2020, things are vastly different. I have not posted recently because I had many people in my family die. My father died of bacterial pneumonia April 9th, my mother´s sister died of Covid-19 on May 11th, my younger cousin died of an unexpected heart attack on May 25th. Then, my mother, who had been fighting cancer which had spread to a lung, died September 17th. It was all too much for her, the deaths, the polluted air from the California wildfires. I will be dedicating this Grid Trek magazine issue to these family members. Please be safe and stay healthy.
