Is this a sign?
At this point, we are all in some type of lockdown mode. Amazing how different 5 days feels now. The only thing I can compare this to is 9/11 but then we could at least go out although numb and engage. Also going downtown after Hurricane Sandy felt very apocalyptic or like being in a sci-fi movie. Eerie.
The virus is pushing all of us to slow down. There will be many silver linings out of this coronavirus extended spring break shut down because there always is. That is part of our daily conversation since both Fred and I are both optimists. We were moving so fast which such bravado perhaps this kick in the pants of reality is what we needed A self-check at ourselves and how we got here.
We are spending more time connecting, although through chat, with friends and family who we are connected to. We are all spending time at home so not commuting, few if any errands, but just taking it down a notch because there is no other choice. Amazing how the hours rack up and there is time to do something else. Learn a new language, read a book, write the great American novel?
Where will this lead us is the big question? Time will tell but having to hunker down might not be a bad thing for a few weeks as painful as it is. It changes your game.
