Happy New Year 2022 - Update your copyright notice!

I hope it's a happy and healthy year for you!


Welcome to 2022. The COVID-19 pandemic is seeing unprecedented infection rates and among the unvaccinated extremely high levels of hospitalizations, ventilator usage and deaths. If you've been following my articles and columns in various publications, especially at Travelers United, you know I've had little time to write about much else, during the second year of the 21st Century Pandemic.”

Unfortunately, due to the Omicron variant, the holiday upsurge of COVID-19 infections likely won't begin to subside until the end of January, at the earliest. This seems like deja vu, doesn't it?

While we have the means to bring the pandemic under control, though likely not end it, unfortunately political misjudgment and ballot greed, plus cult-like conspiracy group think have replaced scientifically obtained determinations and commonsense, with junk and pseudo science for tens of millions in the U.S. and more across the globe. As I'm writing this first NSL Photography Blog article for 2022, more than 291 million have been infected by the COVID-19 virus, with more than 5.4 million succumbing to it, across the globe.

If you're not already doing so, please protect yourselves and your family. It's commonsense. It's ethical. It's moral. Mask up! Social distance! Avoid crowds and crowded spaces, particularly indoors where aerosolized virus is deadly! Don't touch your face, especially your mouth, nose and eyes, before you wash your hands! Wash your hands frequency, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water, not missing the area between your fingers and don't forget your thumbs! If you can't wash, use hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol!
