As much as leaves turning colors and falling to the earth, just as much as a little cold nip we start feeling in the air … Autumn is coming … & it’s been about 7 months, recalling vaguely that some leader talked about “IT” just “disappearing” or that summer season’s heat will just solve the problem and the school opening is … what alternative reality does he live in? This King has no clothes on. King? Yes, because he does not value nor fortify our democracy.
Positive thinking and not wanting to cause panic among the citizens – let’s dumb us down more (if done right, there would have been no panic- isn’t that the job of that position to properly deal with national crisis in public health without causing a panic?) is one thing BUT facing reality squarely to problem-solve while accepting the facts and expertise of professionals, accepting responsiblities and duty to serve – would have brought about a different today – a safer and shorter duration of incessent anxieties, losses and … PAIN. Now the economy seems to limp along …
They told us the Fall was coming. They said that infection rate was going to go up in the Fall. This Virus is not done with us. This attitude of complacency or covid fatigue – “I’m tired of dealing with the virus” – The virus isn’t tired of dealing with you. It’s alive and it’s well and it’s spreading.Gov. Andrew Cuomo
All this could have been prevented as it’s come to light someone who could have made that difference knew about the onset of this virus way before any one of us c – or was he not listening with care, crucial briefing on a public health issue by the experts and intelligence reports ? Way back in the beginning of this year? Even a mere regular person just returning from a “clean”, at the time unaffected country of Japan was freaking out and scared to death before an are travel and donned masks and took all possible measures to protect myself getting on board a flight. The news about cruise ship that sought refuge in Yokohama port got me the creeps. One would think something would be done about it – to nip it int he bud while there was still that chance – Like had these exemplary countries lead by amazing leaders- look at New Zealand; look at Taiwan … But afraid to cause a panic so pretend it’s like a flu that poof – disappears into magic?
Anyway, we have to deal with this predicament we got ourselves into – no choice now but to follow all the CDC guildlines even if you yourself just feel fine and vibrant and radiant and healthy and virus-free – still you can be a carrier – AND we need to take care of our spirit – our mental health. Are we not getting more anxiuos and depressed as this wears on our nervous system and the whole outlook? The fear? The constant vigilance? Wears us down so here’s a proposal.
A yoga practice that restores and replenishes us everyday; it’s not the Pre-Covid times yoga – it’s yoga just for this particular period or beyond … What does that look like? Let’s explore.
