One of the things I’ve been impressed with during this corona-crisis is the resilience of people and what they have done during this time. No, most of us haven’t learned to speak Italian or Spanish, but many people have found interesting things to do. Some of my neighbors are rediscovering old hobbies or dusting off cookbooks and getting reacquainted with their kitchens. Monte was writing the other day about replacing the coffee shop routine with visits to the countryside in the early morning or late evening. Earl and Cedric have been revisiting old photographs – sometimes finding lost photos filed in the wrong folder! – and reworking them to make new art.
Of course there are downsides, but I try to not dwell on those.
