When I again drove to the Civic Center for my second shot of the vaccine, tears of gratitude came just like last time.  There are three check-ins staffed by happy volunteers.  My flashing St. Patrick’s Day shamrocks added to the mood though I wasn’t the only one flashing green.   

There was a slight delay as the vaccines were late and no one complained.  Disneyland may have once been called the happiest place on earth, but I can tell you these vaccination sites outpace that by a zillion times.

Last time Adrian vaccinated me and today, David, a retired doctor.  

I walked out and felt I was seeing differently, more expansively, gratefully.  It’s quite an operation and a heart-lift of gratitude for the energy that brings us all together to save and protect as many of us as possible.
