The other day there was a New Moon. I have been using the moon as a focus for short term goals. It is a way of resetting my projects for the next 28 days.
Earlier this week the UK to all intents and purposes closed down. Along with most of the rest of the world; work, movement and socialising are on hold. Air travel, migration, human interaction, manufacturing are slowing, pausing and even halting.
There is a virus. There are other viruses. Some things act like a virus but are not.
As the world shuts down the earth resets.
As the lungs of humanity choke with the virus the earth’s clear.
There are many allegories that we can make. There are many others, less qualified than I, who will peddle their snake oil predictions and fallacies.
Of those who are stricken directly and indirectly by the coronavirus, who shall recover? The old, the infirm, the business, the stocks and shares, the planet, capitalism, socialism, love, hate, empathy, the fittest, the determined, the meek?
Everything may return to as it was. Everything may become something new. Everything may be the same. Everything may be different.
Pause or reset.
