COVID Diaries, Day 20


I’ve been sad the last couple of days.  Sad about all the people dying, sad that I can’t see my friends and my family, sad about all the people who have lost their jobs, sad about all the people who just don’t get it, and even sad about all the people who think it’s their job in life to publicly shame the people who just don’t get it.  As if that’s going to make them get it.

I’m sad about my horse too.  I’m mostly ok, but then I think about a memory, and lose it all over again.  30 years is a long, long time…

Yesterday after my very first remote, video-conference public Board meeting (surprise! no one from the public “attended”), I still had time to walk up to the now empty university campus to watch the sunset.  The perks of working from home.  Hearing the birds chirp, and the seagulls squawking and seeing the sun going down over the bay, as it does every night, made me feel better.

  1. Like most things in life, working from home has pros and cons. Let’s hope world returns to normalcy soon and let’s hope we come out more appreciative of life as a human race.
