If nothing else, (and there’s plenty else) a pandemic brings home the universality of experience.
There will be time to reflect and assess whether we under-reacted, overreacted, were prepared or not and coped or not.
Right now all such assessments feel premature and sadly too political. Quarrelsomeness is part of our species. But so is mobilization and co-operation.
Which is what I’m focusing on, as friends all over the globe post Corona Outerwear Fashion:
A friend in South Korea^ (They were ahead!)
A sister in Israel^ (She makes these herself)
A friend in Madagascar^
A friend in Maine, USA^
And yours truly in California, USA^
I’m determined to return to musing about writerly and other life things next week. These, too, are universal and there lies the value of shared thoughts.
Can hardly wait to say Bye-Bye to COVID-19. Let’s meet on the other side.
