πŸ’¬ Not a Snow Day

Replied to (Untitled) (readywriting)

This is not like those times. I keep trying to find some parallel, some analogy, to try and explain why this feels so much different. Everything outside looks exactly the same; from my kitchen window, the sun is streaming in and the trees are starting to bud. Spring is arriving, and I have no time, no bandwidth to appreciate it. There is no one day, one event – when the storm hit, when the fires started, when the ground shook – to point to and say, this is when it started, but also no time or place or milestone that will indicate that all of this is over. We literally don’t know when this will end.

The current situation is so weird Lee. I really like your point that it has no real comparison, especially not snow days.

I am still being required to travel into the city each day for work. In some respects, nothing has changed. However, everything has changed. It is so easy to be naive and complacent as the impact is often unseen.
