Last week was one helluva month.
I’m not searching for sympathy or a pat on the back. Lots of folks have it much worse than I do and I’m grateful for all the wonderful things in my life as well as just the basics of food, shelter, and clean water. The above statement for me is mostly scene setting, okay?
It’s a weird time in the world. There’s a virus nonchalantly roaming about the earth trying to kill us. But that’s kind of understating and overstating it simultaneously, isn’t it? Even with much of the rampant progress slowed, there’s still lots of people losing their lives and it’s pretty clear that this thing is far from over. The overstatement is assigning some kind of motive or emotion to a virus. It really doesn’t care. It’s out to replicate and spread, because… that’s what a virus does.
Sort of like social media.
