COVID-19 has left an indelible impression on the world at large and certainly Coronado has not been spared economically or culturally. Last week two of the city’s iconic events, the Fourth of July Parade and all that day’s attendant events were cancelled. The following day Concerts in the Park was cancelled, with a glimmer of hope existing that a concert or two could be held.

Concerts President Cathy Brown provided her thoughts on what would have been the 50th Anniversary of Concerts in the Park. “The best we can hope for is maybe, and this is a big maybe, the last week of August and/or Labor Day Sunday, Sept. 6. These dates are based on the schools being back in session and we get the okay from the City. Also, only Coronado local bands would play those dates. Of course, if anything changes, and we’re allowed to have the concerts, the Board can make it happen very quickly. We will celebrate our 50th Anniversary next year in 2021. I can’t wait to see you all again, dancing at the Concerts.” more >>

When 2020 began I had just moved into an apartment with a friend and out of my parent’s house for the first time since college. Various factors had finally lined up to take that step, where I’d be cutting my commute to work each day in half, have a carpool buddy to switch off driving days with, and be living with friends. Great, right?

In the two and half months before lockdown began, my roommate and I were busy with getting settled – buying furniture, filling up our kitchen with cooking essentials, groceries, etc. Work was steady in a brand new building the company had just

Recently I posted on Face Book that in a few months I would be “officially” old. Not that I feel old even though wrinkles are increasing, I grow tired more quickly, and my calendar has multiple medical appointments every month. The numbers keep clicking past, and it is time to face reality. The goal of enjoying old age instead of becoming a grumpy curmudgeon is helped by deciding what is worth continuing, creating new experiences, spending more time with family, nurturing treasured friendships, and overlooking the trivia that annoys us.

The past year, with the COVID Confinement, has allowed time for more reflection and sorting through memory boxes. With the
