Again, I am reminded of how technology is keeping me sane. I’ve emailed and texted with friends and coworkers. I have ZOOMed with my writing group. Of course, there have been telephone calls. And now I’m settling into a night of Facebook.
This could be so much worse. We may be social distancing, but many of us are both maintaining social connections and building new ones.
Of course, I say this having turned the television off early this morning. The relentless reporting of this crisis is necessary, but it is not necessary that I watch every minute of it. I trust that if it’s important, they will tell me tomorrow when I turn the news back on. Too much is just too much. I’m practicing safe television.
