Grounded by a Virus

What Matters During the Corona Crisis

Together on TV

What a change in just over a month. A month ago, I did notice what was going on in China, and I did know that it was just a matter of time when the rest of the world would be hit by the storm, but now where it’s here, and we’re having this global lockdown, it feels like we stepped out of a video game into reality. The news are not “somewhere there” anymore, now we ALL have become the news.

A humbling experience

Now we know how lucky we were when SARS and MERS and other viruses were around, when scientists tried to warn us what it would be like if such a potent virus were to create havoc on a global scale. Well, that never happened, so all of that sounded more like a SF theory and very unlikely to play out in reality.

Burning up time

Like our crazy economy, which has no connection to what we really need, but rather based on the consumption of mostly unnecessary, disposable things that serve no other purpose but to waste time and resources.

I write about the resistance to change, the unwillingness to take risks, and paralysis of indecision — only the good stuff.
