Oh my! How daily life has changed in the last 10 days.

Right about now most of us are practicing varying degrees of self-isolation and social distancing. We are adjusting to this paradigm shift as best we can and finding that, 
If there is a silver lining in this crisis, it may be that the virus is forcing us to use the internet as it was always meant to be used—to connect with one another, *share information and resources, and come up with collective solutions to urgent problems." –Kevin Roose, NYT. 

What I would like to *share today is not information or a resource, it is a perspective. And it is not a thought that just popped into my head, rather it is a notion that has been brewing since 2016; I took it with me on March 18, 2018, along with thousands in SoCal, as we “Marched for our Lives.”
My sign that day read:
“Our Political Renaissance Begins Now.”

Two years later, SciFi-ish as it may seem, I feel the planet-wide overhaul has begun in earnest, and Mother Nature herself is heading it. Without her intervention, changes we are scrambling to implement now, might have otherwise taken 50+ years to adopt. Submitting to this renaissance movement are the global economy, health care, communication, education, workforce, lifestyles and all manner of human interaction with the planet and between ourselves.

Mother Nature knows what she’s doing; I trust that while we self-isolate, water will become pure again, the air will clear, trees won’t be cut down, and animals will get to live in peace for a time. Looking out my window, like millions are driven to do, I feel we are experiencing a historic moment: Mother Nature has forced the world to stop. 

In closing and along the lines of change, I'll leave this other angle here too:
When people talk about traveling to the past, they worry about radically changing the present by doing something small, but rarely anyone in the present really thinks that they can radically change the future by doing something small, today.” –Miskatonic University Library, FaceBook Page
Until next time, and as always,
Happy Reading!
