COVID is living in us, with us, around us, and sadly for way too many people – it’s killing them.
Just as we understand the best of times and the worst of times, it isn’t only those times we are living in/through and the safe-distanced experiences we are sharing or have in common.
This virus has taken up residence and doesn’t want to get out of the house. Just as house-guests often overstay their welcome, and it’s time we gave COVID the boot. That’s complex, involves submitting to medical/government rules and guidance, waiting for vaccines, better treatments, and miracle cures …
That whole bundle might keep us safe, but will it make us well?
If we successfully avoid COVID, what are we missing by being so distracted?
Aren’t we missing out on fresh ideas, dreams, experiments, adventures, invention, creativity, and bold initiatives?
Business unusual used to be a catchy phrase – one that would make you chuckle. We’ve had business unusual for nearly a year now thanks to COVID-19, with little hope we’ll return to anything usual anytime soon.
So what defines usual?
Why is unusual any kind of assessment guide?
Just as amendments to circumstances can change everything (a winning lottery ticket, a losing diagnosis, landing a great job or a big fish, falling flat, falling into our out of love), we have a collective 8.0 billion of us changing circumstances. Should we go with the flow, like those schools of fish, or not?
Happy New Year. Hi Mark. Wishing you all the best in 2021. Although it may be the year of Mad Max. I think i will have to revisit that movie. I came home March 9th from Mexico and into isolation for the rest of the year. I didn’t really mind it. I have the garden, pool and dogs so i was generally content and happy. I picked Brussels sprouts in a downpour for my hockey game pizza yesterday. I really enjoy having garden fresh food all year round. Had beets for Christmas dinner and the last of my Poblano peppers as well. Time to start the seedlings for spring. Retirement is peaceful and the days fly by. How are you doing? Big hugs, DB, Vancouver, BC
