Wandering to the philosophical side of town today. More because I am sitting in my office at home, where I have been sitting now every day since the 2nd week of March. I do feel horrible for those who are suffering. Suffering is never the right place to exist. I also know these are stressful times. Fear is the driver that many have to consider. I wish I had magic words that would calm people down.
it is a difficult time, and for the 474,000 people directly impacted by this, it is awful. It is a pandemic that has very quickly struck the entire world. It is a difficult situation. I would, however, remember the other side of this situation. It is terrible, it is difficult, but as of today, it has impacted around 7% of the world. That is bad, don’t get me wrong. I am not downplaying a disease just wanted to put the numbers in perspective. Covid-19 is something to be worried about, to be concerned about. It is something to help you stay away from other people. It is and has spread faster than nations of the world were ready for. It is the first modern age Pandemic, and it was covered by the systems we use to move about this planet.
I will say that this will pass. That we as humans will all look back and realize that things like Covid-19 can happen. That we as a species need to smarter about how we consider and approach mother Gaia, or mother nature, or Earth if you prefer. As spring bursts around us, flowers push off the yoke of winter and rise to greet the face of the spring sun. We have many gifts we can rejoice in. We can take a moment and fill the site or any site with green. It is the time when the yoke of winter leaves us. We still have hope, and we still have a chance. Let’s all be safe out there.
The world is a better place, with you in it!
