The Corona List of Ten

The situation regarding the corona virus is evolving daily, with media coverage of new cases, accounts of shortages in grocery stores, and ample footage of people wearing masks and gloves. Social distancing is the norm. There is talk of potential vaccines, talk of how to manage our career from home, and talk of conspiracy theories with various motives. The subject has talked many of us to a point of mental numbness, as evidenced by our blank stares. Amidst all of the news there has been one major upshot: Our forced hibernation has provided an opportunity for our hearts to open. We’ve been given time to contemplate how we’ve been living, and to ask ourselves what holds real importance. The following list may reflect some–or all–of our conclusions:

  1. Love.
  2. Refer to number 1.
  3. Refer to number 1.
  4. Refer to number 1.
  5. Refer to number 1.
  6. Refer to number 1.
  7. Refer to number 1.
  8. Refer to number 1.
  9. Refer to number 1.
  10. Refer to number 1.

The love within our heart exists for good reason. Now may be the best time to become more aware and question whether we are expressing it with family, friends, colleagues, and, yes–even the man or woman standing six-feet away–in the best possible way.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

With heartfelt regards,
