COVID-19 and ambiguous days ahead


Hello everyone,

Hope all is having a great Sunday.

These are interesting times, indeed.

First of all, I am really sorry that so many have died of COVID-19, aka corona virus.

At first, I had not understood the lock downs, but now I understand it very well. China and South Korea have done well controlling the disease so far. The situation in Italy seems bad, with a large number of deaths in the last day or so, which makes me wonder where they have gone wrong.

Experts say that they were late in social distancing and isolation measures.

Pretty much similar to the USA right now. My fellow Americans, Italians, and all other nationalities affected by COVID-19, please be safe. Please exercise vigilant hand-washing and social distancing.

When it comes to Canada, we have cases but overall it seems to spread just slowly yet. My work place has implemented a number of measures, but we still are expected to report to work. I have no problem with this, but wonder how long this will go on. I have a feeling that we may be asked to stay away and work from home soon. As someone who likes to work, I find this somehow annoying.

But come to think about it, it can also be a great opportunity to break the routine, let go off some of the unnecessary tasks, and re-evaluate what is important and what needs to be kicked out – whether it is tasks, committees, or relationships at work.

So, my friends. Let’s stay safe. Let’s take this time to help others and neighbours (elderly particularly – let’s help them keep safer by shopping for them, for example). And let’s take this time to come to our true nature. Free of the clutter and hurdles of the daily life and workplace.

                    1. yes, the numbers in Canada are good but they are increasing alarmingly. The chief medical officer said today that the time to flatten the curve is getting limited. So I take this as an alarm really. Many places – schools etc. – are closing. I ask some of my staff to work from home. I am scared because I live alone and the disease seems to rapidly accelerate in some cases. Anyways – social distancing is the best measure. You are doing good!

    1. yes indeed, but we are forever friends 🙂 we are okay generally speaking; I half-isolated myself today. Gotta be at the work place for meetings the next two days, but after that I will aim for a strict social distance. How is everything going on with you? I saw that you decluttered today! excellent job – I gotta do that myself soon :0
