Well, this pandemic is happening. [insert comments about pandemic and politics and how stupid people are here]
We’ve been essentially “sheltering in place” for the last week, and today Dallas County issued a Shelter In Place order. Hoping that neighboring counties will follow their lead this week. Pretty foolish not too. I get to telecommute this coming week. After that, supposedly, as part of team B, I’m supposed to go in to work and “distance” from my colleagues. Which I don’t really see working very well or helping us to stay well. I don’t see how we can make it work, and I don’t see this ending any time soon. It seems probable that this is going to go on a long time. Not being pessimistic. Just realistic. Our goal is to stay healthy and not get this until there is a treatment or a avoid it with a vaccine. So who knows what the coming months will bring. Changes perhaps. But for now, we are good, and now is really all there is, and “now” is gone before you experience it.
Hope you, my friends, are all well and being smart.
