“People are crazy and times are strange, I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range…” – Bob Dylan
There’s an overwhelming collective anxiety that lingers at present. It’s hard to shake.
Yet, with the constant drone of doom that streams through our devices, there is just one small silver lining for the unrelenting optimists among us.
Our overloaded calendars are now completely free.
Of course, it comes at an enormous price – granted. However, if COVID-19 has taught us anything at all, it’s that some things are completely out of our control.
While we can’t always control the world around us, we can manage our response. So take a deep breathe and lets make the most of this social distancing business!
