You can see it even through the mask(s) people are just more sad/blue than in many other times. This is a pandemic of the mind that is infecting major parts of our population. Yes, the China Virus has a role and the embarrassing withdrawal from Afghanistan but it’s also the thickness in the air. A thickness that has seeped from person to person as what we were “looking for” isn’t as bright and shiny as we thought it would be. The big picture has gotten a whole lot smaller and much more personal. The pandemic of the blues has hit our shores like a tidal wave and unless we realize that getting our feet wet is fine enough I’m afraid many will drown in it.
FOOTNOTE- Mindfulness might help us step back from the waves and feel a whole lot better.
