Expecting the Unexpected?

Do you know what's worse than getting COVID?  

Getting COVID far away from home during an important museum installation!

So I'm writing this blog post from isolation in a hotel room in Minot, North Dakota.  It's a drag because right across the street, my fellow museum workers are installing new exhibits which I should be helping with.

Nevertheless, through the wonders of modern communication, we are continuing to work together to move things forward.  

I suppose there's a lesson in there somewhere about flexibility and making the best of how things actually are, not how you wish they were.  

(Check out these ExhibiTricks posts in a similar vein, What's your Plan B? and What's On Your Three Lists?)

I hope if you are encountering some unexpected obstacles of your own, you are finding ways around (or above or below or through) them.
