Spring is less than three weeks away and one can already feel the energy of new life swirling, waiting to burst out. Perhaps this year more than ever as we slowly ease out of the pandemic we are excited about getting back into public life, reinvigorating our friendships and celebrating life.

This week’s digest of Crow’s Feet writing starts off with two poems that tenderly reflections on the later stages of our lives, one by Eileen Vorbach Collins and one by Lisa Wathen. We have a variety of stories, from a brush with Covid to the satisfaction of going back to college late in life. You’ll find insight and humor in these stories, so take a moment and read-on!

If you like them, pass this newsletter on to a friend, or visit Crow’s Feet right here for more.
