Free at Last. Free at Last.


“Villainy wears many masks; none so dangerous as the mask of virtue.”

Washington Irving.

I had a work meeting yesterday. When I arrived at the site, before walking in, I checked my email.

A work email: Masks are no longer required.

Freedom! At long last.

After we’ve found study after study saying they weren’t effective anyway.

After we’ve read that the numbers of cases and deaths was inflated.

Here on day 659 of 15 days to slow the spread…no more masks.

Truth is, I’ve not been wearing one for some time, except where it was absolutely required.

It’s time to move on. It’s time to put these last two horrible years behind us.

Every generation has their challenge. I don’t think we came out of this better people like those who lived through the two World Wars.

We’re not even better people than we were in the weeks and months following the 9/11 attacks.

But, we could be.

Like I’ve been writing this week, we’re all a little cranky, we’re all a little moody.

There’s not much good news out there.

Everything is expensive.

We may be on the brink of World War III.

So, I’ll take the little victory of taking off the mask. I may even stop carrying one with me.

I know, radical, right?

It was nice to be back in a meeting and just be miserable because the meeting ran on too long and not because you can’t breathe.

Let’s be clear. If you feel you still need to wear a mask, by all means, go right ahead.

I won’t judge you. But I will no longer wear a mask if  there is any way I can avoid it.

That’s called freedom.

And it smells wonderful.
