One of my neighbors, a construction sub-contractor, just rang my doorbell. He wisely maintained a six foot distance as I looked down to see he had placed a paper bag at my doorstep. In it were some N95 respirator masks and gloves.

I thanked him, saying how much that meant to me, and told him to thank his family and be safe as well.

We tend to underestimate how important these interactions are. Reach out, if only to ask “How are you?”
It’s powerful medicine.
