Yes we can

There’s that old Chinese “curse” my dad taught me when I was a kid:

May you live in interesting times

I had no idea it was apocryphal when I learned the expression oh so many years ago; dad probably didn’t either. Let’s face it: he didn’t have Snopes or Wikipedia or a myriad other tools at his fingertips to fact-check the saying. If he did, he would have found out that this “curse” was nothing more than the end-result of a game of broken telephone.

That was fake news, I guess.

Are these ever interesting times. Social isolation is the new watchword; schools have been closed, mass gatherings are banned, travel has reduced to a trickle, and we’re all being told to work from home, until this contagion passes.

We’ll get through this—we always do—and perhaps a new normal will emerge.

It’s time to hunker down and make the most of life around the house. When the light is right, what more can you ask for?

Perhaps staying in isn’t so bad right now. A few weeks of melting would do us all a little good.
