I read an article where reference was made to the pandemic as plague daze! A plague is describe as a contagious bacterial disease, an epidemic disease causing a high rate of mortality. The word daze means, unable to think clearly or act normally due to injury, shock, bewilderment, fatigue, etc. Albert Camus writes: ‘Pestilence is so common, there have been as many plagues in the world as there have been wars, yet plagues and wars always find people equally unprepared. Have you been caught unprepared with the outbreak of this virus?
A question to ponder. ‘What do you choose?’ A simple statement and yet it could be difficult to answer. The quote by Paulo Coehlo rings loud and clear in my ears as everything seems to happen all at once during this time: “Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen at once.” We had so much time to think and introspect during the lockdown we had to endure. Then as the lockdown regulations eased it seemed that everything was happening all at once. The recent resurgence of the virus has once again reignited fear as some countries are effectively in lockdown again.
