Hello All. As we evolve in to the New Normals in our lives,
there will be a lot of adjustments. Some will turn out just fine
while others will likely stress some of us. Namely, the use of
virtual meetings where everyone space ’s face is now broadcast
to whoever is in attendance. This is probably the least significant
of our changes to come, but it certainly stresses many out in
deciding what to wear, which background and how to present
To that point, we are using screen shots of many people that
we include in our stories, Since we are all virtually attending
meets, this is the only way to help identity the individuals that are
on the calls. It also helps us remember that person’s name who
we always forget!
So, in our new normal of meeting, please practice smiling and
looking at the camera occasionally. If you remember, "Smile, you
are on Candid camera"
Be well, don't sweat the small stuff, and "see" you soon.
