Staying at home because of the corona virus.
Of course, it would be much better if there wasn’t a deadly virus spreading around the globe.
Apart from the obvious issue of death and sickness, there is the uncertainty of how & how long this will impact the economy, with all the ramifications.
But, as a school teacher in Turkey, I’ve been told to stay at home for at least two weeks.
If I were at school working right now I’d be about to start an afternoon of classes.
Put simply, I’d rather be here on the couch, writing.
Some people dread having nothing to do or being stuck at home.
I just see possibility to read, watch interesting videos, explore ideas and to re-focus on physical & mental health. Anything that I find fulfilling.
Being expected to stay at home. Being mandated to stay at home.
It’s a welcome respite.
