Coping With Corona IV

“…no one can do it this long” – Kanye West ( No One remix)

Hey, I have no idea how you’ve managed to hold it down so far, but I just want to let you know that you are doing great.

It’s been crazy the times we live in.

Over the last few months our whole lives have been continually flipped in different ways, and I don’t say this to scare you but things are far from being normal.

Things will never be the same again.

We’ll just have to adapt to this brave new world and make it our new normal.

But would that be really such a bad thing?

I mean, if you think about it deeply, there are many potential benefits that would come out of this crisis.

Our mostly ignored health care system would have to be looked into.

Governance will never be the same again.

Our idea of relationships will be continually challenged.

Our educational system will have to go through something akin to seismic.

The internet? Our lives? Businesses?

The world we expected in fifty years is closer than we thought.

It’s funny how tragedy has to happen for true change to occur.

I’ve been reading a little less nowadays and seeing a lot more movies. It’s funny how it took the world grinding to a halt for me to take things easier.

I’ve been writing a lot too.

I think more than I’ve ever been.

Maybe that’s why I’m putting out a post by 11pm after working on a writing project for over a week.

I’ve always touted the idea of employing the services of a stenographer, and I would as soon as I have enough for it of course.

Writing is back-breaking work, but it’s the best form of therapy that I know.

That’s why I’m writing to tell you that no one can manage all that has been happening alone and on their own, but since we’ve got each other, we can.

Stay safe. It always gets better.
