A recent news quotes the WHO as cautioning the world that the worst could be yet to come. Egad! Though everyone wants it to just go away and never ever return, Covid-19 is apparently not done with humans as yet. For quite some time to come, life for humans will be about living in red, yellow or green zones as mandated by the virus.
Come to think of it, what else can you expect when you have some people go so far as to giving it the status of a deity and worshiping it as Goddess Corona? I imagine Covid-19 is jubilant. Me, a Goddess? This is simply awesome. Like hell I am leaving. I am gonna stay right here and enjoy the hospitality of these ‘nice’ people who are offering me flowers and food and what’s that, incense? Bring it on. Light more lamps, please. I love being a Goddess! It’s so cool.
You see how it is? It is happening right in front of our eyes, I try telling those who care to listen. By the way, very few do, which is why I have a blog. Duh! This is how it must have happened in the past, I go on. People were scared of some sickness or other and not having any means of control over it, they did the next best thing, gave it the status of a deity and started worshiping it, hoping it would not harm them too much, not kill but let them live.
Small pox and chicken pox were/are believed to be the Mother Goddess visiting your body. How long before Goddess Corona is elevated to the same status by more and more people in the coming days? My words are usually met with stony silence. The past is holy, and anyone who tries to rationalize anything from that glorious past, is unholy. Oh, never mind.
Everyone wants this (the pandemic) to be over, says Dr Tedros of WHO, but the hard reality is, this is not even close to being over.
This is distressing news to me. For many more months to come, I cannot hope to do two of the things I love so much: Have my children over and/or travel anywhere. So I have decided to respond to this distress in the only way I know to de-stress. The wordy way. Yup, you may have guessed it. I am doing an all-month-er, if I may call it so. Every
morning, no-no I don’t want to make rash promises, noon, no, not noon, I gotta nap, evening, nope, won’t do, that’s when I walk, so okay, late night before the clock strikes the midnight hour, there I got that right, there’s going to be a post on Shail’s Nest.
July, here I come.

It is not being able to see family that really gets to me!
True that, Anne.

Let’s hope that testing becomes more and more available. If you’re all negative, you can hug.
Indeed. But first we must be allowed to travel so as we can hug. 🙂
I am in france right now and have been since mid March. But I am so ready to return to California that I even have a plane ticket for the end of July. So with all the new information, I’m thinking that I should stay here and not travel. Indecision is terrible. Well the wonderful comfy mask will be covering my mouth and nose. The whole flight???? Bah humbug. Not fun as my grandson, age 6, said when he was asked to do his homework.
Shall, I’m counting on you to keep us all up to date. Thanks
Things are not looking so bright for a lot of countries. Even our state which was doing quite well has numbers swelling. These are hard times indeed.
Some far right Christians in the U.S. are claiming that COVID-19 is a punishment from God because of our evil ways, decadent lives, and immorality. All I can do is roll my eyes. 🙄
Shaking my head, here. Every place seems to have their kind.
I don’t know when I’ll be able to go see my family again and the uncertainty is so hard. We are all suffering in one way or another because of this awful virus.
True, that. There are stories everywhere and some of them heartbreaking.

Every cloud has a silver lining! I will manage Covid 19 much better with daily doses of Shail 🙂
