Most of us have officially survived the first half of this crazy year, rest in piece to the 519k coronavirus deaths to date. This is generally one of my favorite months of the year. Not only is it my birthday month, I love the summer weather in Southern California. Usually I’d have already lost track of how many times I’ve been down to the beach by now. This year that’s unfortunately not an issue; I’ve been precisely twice. In spite of the ever looming threat of being infected with COVID-19, I have a number of things I am looking forward to this month.
