I have been trying to post an article on 19th-century Quebec. As workers tried to organize, many priests sided with the boss. Some threatened excommunication, if workers got together. A few workers were killed. In short, it’s heartbreaking.

Yet, I will write the shortest of posts. We are living and dying in the age of Covid-19. There are new outbreaks. So I want to tell you to wear a mask. It’s your only defense.

Social distancing does not work very well unless one also wears a mask. Nature has made us gregarious, so we automatically approach others.

Artist Suzor-Coté was a protégé and friend of Sir Wilfrid Laurier.

Stay safe.

Love to everyone 💕
