As with so many people, all of my plans changed and I am learning the hard lesson that sometimes you just have to be flexible and stop making grand plans.

How I Have Been Coping (or What I Have Learned from Living During a Pandemic)
Bernadette Welch

As an active person who doesn’t spend a lot of time at home, suddenly being told to stay home has been an adjustment. It has brought changes to my daily routine, caused me to reevaluate some parts of my life, allowed me time to stop and smell the roses (we’ve had the most amazing spring this year), taught me to find alternative ways of doing things I have always taken for granted, and helped me to find a new kind of work-life balance.Continue reading

Linus and the Five String
Alistair Newbern

A family friend gave my parents a Peanuts cartoon on the day I was born. It goes something like this: Linus and Charlie Brown are walking along and Linus is waxing existential, as he often does. He says, “I feel sorry for little babies. When a little baby is born into this cold world, he’s confused! He’s frightened! He needs something to cheer him up. The way I see it, as soon as a baby is born, he should be issued a banjo!”Continue reading

Most of the time, I have been at the office by myself. I have certainly taken all precautions as I move from my car to my office and almost always wear a mask. Once I get to my office, I stay there. I have been doing client meetings by phone.Continue reading

KOCH IN THE TIME OF COVID-19

Many associate the Ides of March with the soothsayer in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Some may recall CBS cancelled The Ed Sullivan Show on that day in 1971, and 19 years ago, the World Health Organization issued a global health alert regarding a mysterious respiratory disease – SARS.Continue reading

The virus pandemic has turned my world upside down just as it has with everyone else, although my responsibilities as a judge are different than for private practitioners and in house counsel. Instead of worrying about the business aspects of practicing law, I have had to worry about keeping my cases moving forward while balancing public safety, available resources, the reasonable concerns and fears of the litigating lawyers, and the health of myself and my employees.Continue reading

Baking was something that I loved to do before we had our daughter, Sylvia.  After becoming a mom, my hobbies fell by the wayside to make room for puppet shows, princess tea parties, and lightsaber training.  Sylvia is now seven and plays independently more often, so during the pandemic, I found myself with extra time on my hands.  I honestly cannot remember the last time I had extra time on my hands.Continue reading
