When hubs and I recently toured a couple of Regional Parks in our area, we stopped for a break beside a basketball court.

As I looked up at the basketball hoop, I thought about how many hoops we’ve been jumping through with Covid-19 precautions, in hopes of eventually regaining some semblance of what normal used to look like.

We’re certainly doing everything that’s required of us, up to and including me taking my epi-pen along for my first dose of the vaccine. I had been told by an allergist many years ago that I was highly allergic to vaccine preservatives.

Thankfully, I had no reaction.

This photo was rendered in HDR in addition to the original shot. I preferred the blown out bits of sky in the original, as it seemed to speak to me more about the mood I was trying to convey.

“I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.”
