As the sun sinks down behind the steep mountains of Appalachia, the world waits with bated breath for a vaccine against the coronavirus. Here we are, almost two months in trench warfare, fighting an invisible enemy. Still, victory seems uncertain, for many of us feel like voyagers of the night facing a steep mountain road we have yet to begin to climb. This may be metaphorical, but it feels true, scary and quite hurtful. But I’m here once more in the den—this time, writing about a world that is becoming more and more dangerous to venture around. Be hopeful, my friends. Twilight doesn’t last forever.
