Get Back

We keep hoping, during this pandemic, that we will at some point get back to normal, whatever we believe that to be. But we feel powerless to affect much change in that direction. What is it that we really need to get back to and, apart from the in-person social interaction events we were used to, what are some other ways we can pursue in order to get back?
