Admittedly, I feel at a loss this week. So much has changed here in the United States in such a short time that whiplash does not do it justice. I cannot begin to imagine the collective grief of Italians and Iranians who are experiencing the worst of the Coronavirus outbreak. Sure last week we were chuckling about Em’s TP Haiku – this week we are seeing numbers go up exponentially of cases and deaths here in America, our largest States are in lockdown, and we are taking emergency measures to flatten the curve. So…
Three things I am doing:
1. Our local United Way has set up a COVID-19 section on their volunteer page and it includes opportunities for everything from delivering meals to specific needs for shelters. What appeals to me are opportunities to help veterans. None of them require a significant time investment, all of them seem consistent with the CDC recommendations for distancing, and each of them represents a little something we can do.
2. The Go Dog Go Cafe will continue to offer a forum and words of encouragement to support anyone needing it for their creative processing during these crazy times. We encourage you to participate in all of our features. This community of people, around the world, can and will stand together.
3. I will be like everyone, applying for remote jobs and on-line content work. Anyone hiring!
