Our son is all better from his bout with Covid. To celebrate his release from quarantine on day ten, he went for a solo hike in the Hudson Valley before driving to New Jersey to pick up his fiancée from her parents' house, where she had been since he tested positive just after Christmas. He said he felt restored being outdoors in nature again, rather than staring at the walls of his home. He's back at work today, ready to fight fires and otherwise "serve and protect" his fellow citizens. He's made for this. Not for the first time, he reflected that if he'd had to stay home at the start of Covid lock downs, instead of going out each day and doing his part as a member of New York's Bravest, he would have slowly lost his mind. I guess there was always a purpose brewing for the little boy who wore us out because he never stopped moving.
