Still in London U.K.
The U.S. travel ban now in effect does not apply to the U.K. or U.S. Citizens. Therefore, barring any unforeseen airline kinky schedule-switchery or future orange-man debacles, I will continue with my pre-planned itinerary and travel home on Saturday.
I may be returning to a new world reminiscent of end-of-days science fiction. People cowering in their homes paralyzed with fear. Store shelves devoid of water and toilet paper. Bottled H2O and TP rationing due to stockpiling. I wonder what nutritional value TP has? For the love of G-d people, get a grip. Ya canna eat TP. This isn’t the end of the world- just another previously unknown strain of the already existent corona virus.
Does that mean one should back-off on precautionary measures like using sanitizer or handwashing after touching surfaces, coughing or sneezing into a tissue or your own elbow, keeping a 6’ distance from others? Absolutely not.
Should we stop the media-induced apocalypse now feeding frenzy by turning off the television news? YES! Every network? YES! 24/7? YES! Mark my words, when ratings fall, they will move on to the next topic to sensationalize.
Should we appreciate those we love and care for? Really let them know, because one never really knows how much time we have left on this planet.? YES!
My existential meaningful coincidences, otherwise known as synchronicities this trip have been many and unforgettable. I may see a different world upon my return, but I am returning a changed individual.
So forgive, be grateful, get that meaningful tattoo, say I’m sorry if you need to and mean it, mend fences, do your next best thing, go after what makes you truly happy, be open to love, follow your heart, be true to you, be kind, and just do unto others…
Have a happiness apocalypse!
PS- Share your stockpiled TP!
