Dear Ones,

It appears to me that the COVID delta variant has taken over COVID cases in CA, and because it is very infectious, infections with COVID are increasing. But from the statistics I see that daily deaths from COVID in California are holding steady.

If that is true, then the COVID epidemic, which has so far lasted 14 months in the United States, is falling in line with the 1918 Influenza Epidemic, which lasted 15 months. Could be the worst is over.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
