One thing I know—and this is the central paradox of COVID-19—is that despite the isolation, we are not alone. The pandemic has brought about a sense of shared human consciousness and experience. A friend emails to say: “I find I’m beginning to tune out the politics of it and get more into the humanity of it.” Maybe this is what COVID-19 means: a referendum on humanity. A societal performance review.
The only way to fight the plague is with decency.
Albert Camus (The Plague)

I wish this country would get into the humanity of it. unfortunately, America is filled with assholes.
I think it has brought out the best and the worst in people. I know I'm worn out and not looking forward to the next year but it's not like we have a choice. Carry on.ReplyDelete
The mask from a sock is quite amazing but my socks have holes in them:)
If the only way to fight the plague is with decency, America may be lost. Still I hope against hope for magic ahead.ReplyDelete
I'm trying to tune out politics, but it seems to show up everywhere. The sock-mask video is great. I'm going to try it!ReplyDelete
