On March 17, as I transitioned to working remotely, I realized that I’d been preparing for years for this moment of the video meeting. It turns out that I have a month’s supply of Rhode Island themed t-shirts.
The “how are you?” question is a struggle for everyone these days, and Adam coined a new response, declaring, “I’m good in corona-adjusted terms.”
He spoke about the paradox of feeling hopeful during this difficult time. “It’s hard to say this, because it’s such a hard moment, to acknowledge that there are good things happening in the midst of all this tragedy and in the midst of all this uncertainty,” Adam said. “I’ve been super inspired by how quickly society has been able to transition, and step out of comfort zones, to figure out how to keep going.”
And if you’re not into that kind of thing, hopefully you’ll enjoy the t-shirt banter. Happy Birthday, Adam! Thanks for doing what you do.
