Rummaging through a stack of product shorts, delays, canceled orders, closures, and price increases, I realized its been more than a year since we thought the pandemic would be over in a few weeks, and two months since my last post. Clearly, I have no concept of time. I admit I have been lax at finding renewed direction for FineTrains, the hobby. Good art requires a span of creative settled time that’s at a premium. But, the work continues. All is well. Baking in the “Covid Factor,” for at least the next two years, took far too long.
