This is a really good article about the CoronaVirus…one of the best ones I’ve read. It’s a wake up call.
A few hours ago, Noah and I decided to take Cookie out for a walk, and we went to Starbucks in Beverly—closed. Reduced hours. No seats anywhere in the store. When Starbucks is open, now it’s a ‘grab and go’ place.
Noah and I just stood there for a moment in a daze. It was only 7pm on a Sunday, much too early for Starbucks to be closed. But of course if it had been any normal Sunday evening, Noah and I wouldn’t be at Starbucks anyway, would we. We’d be at home, getting ready to go to bed to face a school week. But there is no school week. And there might not even be another school week for the rest of the year.
So we just stood there in a daze, noticing the less than normal cars going by, the abandoned and closed shops, the absence of pediatricians walking on the sidewalk…
It’s like those photos from the Great Depression come to life before our very eyes…

How are you doing? How are things at home? It’s hard to be cooped up. Having animals helps because to them it’s just another day lol. 🤪👍
