Wow. I knew it had been a while, but had no idea how long. I have been writing up a storm on my fiction projects. So that's good. The world is in a global crisis right now, which is less good.
I was discussing with a friend of mine who has anxiety and we decided that in some ways we are uniquely equipped to deal with scary situations. (Mostly this is a joke, but kind of not.) Because we have dealt with our own panic before. And we have some skills.
Anyway, not gonna write much. I don't want this to be a covid journal. However, I will say that tomorrow I am starting an indefinite period of time socially isolating with my family... Spouse and I working from home and children learning from home through internet.
Alternately bored out of my mind and terrified because of the uncertainty. (How long will this last, will people be okay, when will things go back to normal.)
Today I cleaned out a place in my room to make a "home office." I have until April 6 to get ready to deliver content to students.
Well, that's about it. I'm not on Facebook right now because it isn't good for my mental health. So if you are FB friends with me and want to reach me, your best bet is text.
Stay healthy, stay sane, read a lot.
