Covid-19 and ‘The eternal now’
The more we sit around in our isolation and worry about the future the more miserable we will become.
Yes, coronavirus is bad.
Yes, coronavirus should be taken seriously.
Yes, coronavirus can kill us.
But for now, if you’re at home with no symptoms, don’t destroy the moment on pointless speculation about moments to come.

This moment is OK – don’t ruin it with thoughts of a future moment you can do nothing more to prevent.
