Well, the coronavirus has really caused a major freakout in our society. Stay at home orders by our governor. While I am sad that this virus has taken a toll on the vulnerable population and has caused an increased workload for our hospitals, I do not think this has been worth shutting down our economy. I think everyone has lost perspective about risk management. Life is about tradeoffs.
One positive I have found in this is that I am watching a lot less TV. No golf, baseball, basketball to watch. I have been catching up on a lot of long overdue chores. As well as reading. It has actually been quite peaceful.
I was listening to a talk radio show today where they were discussing the concern of people that are alone. I wonder why I don’t feel lonely. I suppose it is strange that I prefer to live the way that I do. I suppose that most folks would be lonely. But I am quite happy. At least I think I am.
