What kind of people believe that Covid-19 is fake news, a hoax or a conspiracy by the world powers for a one world order? I mean, if it were fake news or a hoax, how do we explain that there are really people dying? Most of us in the world know at least one person who has contracted or died from the virus…as for the conspiracy theories, I suppose I can get behind those in a way except that this One World Order is not very orderly.
But leaving that aside for the moment, if we are all going to die abruptly, it makes very little sense to make any long or short term plan. We might as well go out, leave our masks behind and behave just the way we feel like it every minute of the day. I have always been a person who wants to live a long life. If a person (say Dr. Fauci) is giving me advice, I feel generally confident in following it because Dr. Fauci has his life very together. On the other hand if the unimaginative WH occupier is dispensing advice, I turn the page or silence the volume. There is no way on earth I would engage in anything this entity has to say. He has no vocabulary, I doubt he has any interest in reading a book and the best we can hope for is that he does something so major and reproachable that we will see even the staunchest of his unenlightened followers balk. It is my hope anyway as we end another week of negative news from every corner of the earth.
My world has not changed very much. Every once in a while I crave a huge candy bar or a lovely piece of cake but then I remember that I have chosen to put those things aside until September. It feels good to practice discipline and it is my fervent wish that I will continue to respect myself enough to keep on this path. Time goes quickly, September will be here before I know it. We are already past the first half of May 2020 when it feels like the year just begun…yes even this year with all the hardships.
What will the world look like in 2021? I am eager to see, optimistic that #45 will be retired and golfing on some far away island.
