Watched “The Dig” on Netflix yesterday, and apparently watching a slow-paced, beautiful, WWII-is-imminent-let’s-meditate-on-death movie is enough to actually make me a little more patient about waiting my turn in the vaccine queue, waiting for the disease to be fought back enough that we can start relaxing strictures again.
We’re still living through a global disaster. Hopefully, many of us can come out the other side in not too much longer, returning to something approaching normalcy, but it was never going to be a fast fix. And even when we do, many of us will still have grieving to do. I’ve been very lucky, not to lose anyone to COVID yet. I know quite a few people who have lost friends and family.
Last March, knowing what I knew then, I said we were going to lose a year to this. I have to keep reminding myself of that. A year at least, and a slow, measured recovery afterwards.
Careful, judicious steps, erring on the side of caution. We’ve lost too many already.
