The World is Becoming an Introvert's Paradise

Last month, I was asked if I would be willing to do a presentation about New Job at a local church during the Lenten season, and, of course I said yes. Today was the presentation, and, in light of all of the new Covid-19 social distancing protocols, I got to present in a near-empty church, to parishioners via Facebook Live. It was interesting, and, if I'm being honest, quite preferable to standing before an audience of real, live people.

Speaking of real, live people and social distancing; the schools in Hooterville and Petticoat Junction have shut down for the next month. This presents a world of problems for me in regard to New Job; problems I really didn't need on top of all the other crap already on my mind. That said; I'm sure my concerns are nothing compared to the multitude of parents who now have to figure out daycare options, or who simply won't be able to work.

I guess the best we can do right now is pray for this to be over quickly, help one another when we can, and keep on keeping on. We also need to find a way to come together, despite the need to maintain physical distance. The church had it right this morning; maybe we should all conduct business and social gatherings via Facebook Live.

Except, I swore off social media this morning.

Damn.
