The Pandemic of 2020-21: COVID 19 Coronavirus

“And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently. And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal. And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed.”

Kitty O’Meara – And The People Stayed Home.

My family and I lived through the COVID-19 pandemic. We stocked up on toilet paper, surgical masks, and jigsaw puzzles. During the first two months of the pandemic, I went nowhere, not even to the grocery store. It was such a feeling of isolation. One day, just to get out of the house, I took a shower, did my hair and makeup and went for a drive in my own neighbourhood. Sounds silly, but that drive did me good!
