Dear Friends,

You’re probably shocked to see that it’s May 1, but here we are. We aren’t sure of much, except that we appreciate each and every one of you, and even if we don’t call you (or even answer emails fast enough), please know we are thinking of all those we hold dear – that’s you!!! Thanks very much for the support during this challenging time; we really appreciate it and look forward to the time when hugs won’t be virtual. Oh yes, do we ever need a group hug?!

We would love to hear how you are weathering the storm, cutting (or not cutting) your hair, mind-drifting, spending your time. We are busily installing a huge garden – that is, Adiel is installing it – give credit where credit is due. I regret that we ever tore the old one out last year, but this one is bigger and better and will reduce trips to the store.

DC Real estate listings are becoming somewhat more plentiful, as sellers realize that this is still a hot market and rates are low. There is a dearth of available inventory, so sellers have the upper hand in sales for desirable property. Realtors are essential, buyers are more determined than ever, and the last month has made me realize how ready buyers are (and some sellers) to be in a different place logistically.

Here are six local charities needing help:
Capital Area Food Bank
DC Central Kitchen
Martha's Table
Miriam's Kitchen
SOME (So Others Might Eat)
Thrive DC

And there are others suffering in more dire straits, which these organizations are helping: Charity Navigator

Please let us know if we can help you in any way,

Much love,
Sheryl and Harry

A Song on the End of the World

BY CZESLAW MILOSZ
TRANSLATED BY ANTHONY MILOSZ

On the day the world ends
A bee circles a clover,
A fisherman mends a glimmering net.
Happy porpoises jump in the sea,
By the rainspout young sparrows are playing
And the snake is gold-skinned as it should always be.

On the day the world ends
Women walk through the fields under their umbrellas,
A drunkard grows sleepy at the edge of a lawn,
Vegetable peddlers shout in the street
And a yellow-sailed boat comes nearer the island,
The voice of a violin lasts in the air
And leads into a starry night.

And those who expected lightning and thunder
Are disappointed.
And those who expected signs and archangels’ trumps
Do not believe it is happening now.
As long as the sun and the moon are above,
As long as the bumblebee visits a rose,
As long as rosy infants are born
No one believes it is happening now.

Only a white-haired old man, who would be a prophet
Yet is not a prophet, for he’s much too busy,
Repeats while he binds his tomatoes:
There will be no other end of the world,
There will be no other end of the world.
Warsaw, 1944
