The world-wide pandemic seems to be winding down (hopefully for good!), and we are beginning to return to some semblance of ‘normal’. The pandemic was undoubtedly very difficult, and because challenging experiences are often our best teachers, many of us have emerged from it stronger; perhaps that is the eternal optimist in me always looking for the good in people and situations!

Electricity is a humbling, silent workhorse. To understand the complexity of it can take a lifetime. My personal eureka moment was when I first learned the water hose analogy for explaining electricity, which if you are not privy to, I recommend Googling that one.
