A Chance To Breathe...

Seriously. Watch this. We are all taking this so seriously (as we should be) and our lives are being consumed by COVID-19 and all it entails. We need laughs, we need warmth in our hearts - we need connection. John Krasinski deserves a great deal of praise for delivering all of us Some Good News...Episode 2


The Parents Are Not All Right

Even in the most privileged households, the pandemic is exposing the farce of how society treats families

It’s a new normal. Kids trying to do schoolwork, you and your spouse trying to work, all under the same roof, all at the same time - it can be hard and it can be frustrating. But it doesn’t have to be bad, it doesn’t have to be a source of anger and resentment. If you communicate with each other (and you’re honest in those commutations) and you create an atmosphere of respect, space and love for everyone, including yourself, you can take what is assumed to be a negative situation into a positive one.

“I just want to cry,” I told my wife on Friday morning.

I had just gotten off a work call and my brain was ticking through follow-up items, adding to a long list of untouched to-dos. My wife, meanwhile, was multitasking an onslaught of work questions while also trying to manage “homeschool” time with our son — but he refused to participate. Instead, he huddled in an increasingly secure couch fort, refusing to do anything — color, read, go outside, talk to his teacher — besides sit in silence in the dark or watch his iPad. (Today, he opted for sitting in silence in the dark).

“Are we permanently ruining and psychologically damaging him?” my wife pleaded with me.

Imagine you're a shipwrecked sailor adrift in the enormous Pacific. You can choose one of three directions and save yourself and your shipmates -- but each choice comes with a fearful consequence too. How do you choose? In telling the story of the whaleship Essex, novelist Karen Thompson Walker shows how fear propels imagination, as it forces us to imagine the possible futures and how to cope with them.
