Sunday Morning Photograph December 12 2021: The Mask Angel Cometh.

This covers a novel way to face this pandemic by at least a nose.

I walked into the blood donor center of the American Red Cross for my appointment to donate platelets a few days ago — as I do on a fairly regular basis — and just after I checked in and sat down in the waiting area, the donor center coordinator asked me if I had noticed the ornament on the Christmas tree.

At first, I was not sure to which ornament she was referring — but the most prominent one was a lone angel…

How appropriate for yet another holiday season during the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic.

After expressing to her what a great way to use masks, I then thought to myself that this was the longest two weeks of my life.
