Happy Herman's Hideaway

Body
Hello there, my dearest San Saba loves, and how are you? The parentals and I have had kind of a rough time since last we spoke. My sister, Lani, called to tell us her husband, Roy, not only had tested positive for COVID but had to be rushed to the hospital with virus related pneumonia. Mom has been talking to her every day because she has been as nervous as a squirrel about to fall from a tree because she has not even been able to go to the hospital to see him. He is doing better and will probably get to come home sometime this week. Also dad’s youngest sister, Mary Ann, woke up to find her husband, Sonny, had died during the night. Sonny was such a sweet, gentle and kind man. We are all so sad even though we realize life and death happens to all humans.

Body
Think about a volcano emerging from the surface of the ocean and forming a new island, new land. At first there is no life of any kind on the island. Eventually, however, after the lava has cooled, there may be some bacteria and fungi begin to grow on the lava at the edge of the water, and these microorganisms begin a very long, slow process of breaking down the rock. Then algae can begin to colonize the rocks, growing on the decomposed rock material.
