Conclusion How are we to collaborate within our organi- zations, companies, offices, and homes while staying socially distanced and staying at home? We have to do the best we can with what we have. Just watch; the world seems to be adapt- ing before our eyes and ears. Advancements in conference trends are astronomical. Within our local PCEA community, it is a good time to plan for the future and reach out. This pandemic is not going to last forever. It is prudent for all of us to keep looking forward to ways we can hit the ground running when things get back to "normal." Eat, drink, and be merry; collaborate, edu- cate, and inspire. Soon, some of us may go back to the office. As always, have hope for the fu- ture, and plant your happy seeds now.
