I write you today from the heart. I've been reading a lot of articles about how hard this semester's transition has been for both faculty and students. I've seen it first hand in Zoom meetings from your homes and in Zoom student presentations from basements and kitchen tables, often with life happening in the background. Without the public face of our offices we are more vulnerable, less able to hide the reality of our lives. I can't imagine how you are finding time to care for your own families in addition to your students. This physical separation has been so hard for all of you. And heaven only knows how you are finding time to care for yourself.
