Alterman, Andrea
As this year has passed I've found my focus shifting and sharpening. I'm not sure if this is a function of getting older or how strange 2020 has been. I am one of the lucky ones this time.

We've been playing Mille Bournes and Trouble both of which are punctuated by pleas for, in the former, a remedy card and, in the latter a 6 to get moving. And we finish each other's sentences. We both know the dance and we love it. Sometimes I write about the dance when I include peaches or giggles we've shared.
