Remember what life was like prior to 2020? Yeah, we do too. Humanity was tested physically and psychologically in a way none of us had seen before. Covid caught up with our artist friend Bill Cass and left him with a lingering nuisance in the form of an elevated heart rate every time he got on the bike.
Like most cyclists, when times are tough, Bill likes to get out on his bike to quiet the noise in his head and to sort things out. But the long tail of Covid made that a challenge for him. Being the empathetic soul he is, he considered where his aggravation sat in the scope of larger social ills. As he put it in his post accompanying this illustration, “That self-whinging is truly minuscule given what is going on in the world right now.”
It’s not easy to breathe new life into the tired cliché, “There’s light at the end of the tunnel,” but Bill did exactly that.
