Hello, Readers! I hope you are all taking good care of yourself as we isolate ourselves and hope this virus situation doesn’t get any worse. I’m trying to stay optimistic, but I’ll admit it can be hard.
It’s so weird to see the traffic map completely green! I’ve been in the SF Bay Area for twenty years, and I’ve never seen it before! My town, which is normally filled with people out walking is a ghost town.
As someone who has read a LOT of dystopian stories, I’ll admit, when I considered what our future might look like, how our society would fall apart, I did not have my money on virus-caused-economy-crash.
So, how are you occupying your time, Readers? I hope you have coffee and good books to read. I’m still job hunting, and in a time like this there are still a lot of job postings, but not so much with the hiring. It’s going to get worse before it gets better, so remember to wash your hands, stop touching your face, and take care of one another.
This crisis can make us better people, if we let it. It is already helping out Mother Earth. Check in on the elderly and vulnerable in your neighborhoods, and remember to keep your distance.
Meanwhile, I have a short story to write and a novel to start editing. Hopefully some more editing work will be coming my way soon. Happy Friday, my friends.
