Reflection of the Day: Isolation During an Epidemic

Many writers isolate by nature… writing is a solitary act for the most part so it is no surprise that despite the horror of the world at the moment, many of us are sighing with relief of not having to participate in social activities or put on pants to go shopping.

Also, I broke a rule of mine and have been watching the news, which is terrible… most of it is fear mongering and updates on our government and their childish, schoolyard ways.

What else have I been doing for the last few days?

  • gardened out front
  • threw out a bunch of stuff
  • napped… a lot
  • plotted my next novel (inspired by true events!)
  • finished the damn laundry!

We were out briefly on Sunday and noticed that there were others out and the six foot buffer rule was not being adhered to… I went to get gas to fill up (never know when the bonafide apocalypse will hit!) and the lady in the store tried to shake my hand! WTF woman?!

On the upside, it seems some people are calming the eff down thanks to stores implementing purchasing rules that should have been in place from the get go. If only there would have been quantity limits in the beginning, there wouldn’t be horror stories of mothers sobbing because there is no formula for their babies. 😦

Lowe’s has dots on the floor to keep people six feet apart while standing in line.

I think the upside of this lockdown is that there are less people driving and the planet is healing.

Be safe my friends…
