* I was listening to this song the other night and realized it was darned near perfect for our times. It’s about a holiday spent alone this year. But “next year” all our troubles will be “out of sight” and “miles away.” It’s no surprise that the song, originally recorded by Judy Garland, was a huge hit among World War II troops stationed overseas as well as with their families back home.

We’re reassured that, in due time, “Once again, as in olden days, happy golden days of yore; faithful friends who were dear to us, will be near to us once more.” And the closing line, “So, have yourself a merry little Christmas now,” could be written today for those celebrating in solitude

Someday soon we all will be together
If the fates allow
Until then, we’ll have to muddle through somehow

Wear a mask, keep your distance and wash your hands so you stay alive to participate in what we can only hope will be large and wondrous celebrations this time next year.

Let’s muddle through somehow.
