It's Not Personal But Please Do Keep A Healthy Distance
“I cannot say whether things will get better if we change; what I can say is they must change if they are to get better.” - Georg C. Lichtenberg
Humans gather in tightly packed spaces, hug and shake hands. It is not easy to avoid all that touchy ingrained behaviour but life has changed.
Being a good neighbour now means keeping a safe distance and not overstocking with food or drink. Canadians excel at team efforts so empty shelves where my daughter recently shopped was disconcerting. Perhaps people bought not only for themselves but for self-isolating or quarantined family or friends. There is food in stores generally (see below) and people mostly buy just for two weeks. Shopping prudently, practicing extra hygiene and physical distancing, and not touching our own faces surely will reduce COVID-19 cases and advance the greater good. It starts with each of us … humble beginnings to change habits surprisingly hard to break. Naturally, the hardest habit to break is eating so I was glad to find food on local store shelves.
