OUR VIRTUAL REALITY

Our world is a very different place than it was a few weeks ago. And we don’t know what to expect. It’s a strange time but I don’t need to tell you that.

Watching television I’ve seen a few images that have stayed in my mind. With such caring and comfort, they express our need to connect, and something about that assures me that we will be okay:

There on his balcony, Italian tenor Maurizio Marchini sends his voice soaring, serenading his quarantined Florentine neighbors.

In North Carolina, a young woman, excited about her engagement, stands outside her quarantined grandfather’s nursing home window pointing to her new ring with a huge smile on her face.

Yesterday was our daughter Olivia’s birthday. This is a woman who loves to celebrate her birthday and social isolation isn’t going to get in the way of that. We received an email invitation to:
Olivia’s virtual Birthday Happy Hour
Time: 6:00

At 6:00 we gathered in front of our computers, glasses in hand and a few nibbles on the side, to enjoy our virtual birthday party get-together. Genius!

We were having a party, and it had been something to look forward to!

My mother’s nursing home has shut its doors to all visitors. I understand it is for everyone’s safety. But honestly I’m finding that the isolation isn’t easy. So when I call and hear her voice, a smile comes over my face because I know she is okay; we’ve connected and she knows I’m there.

We’re in isolation but we can and should continue to connect.

“I think it’ll be important to do this every so often,” Olivia said. “We need to take care of our mental wellbeing.”

She is so right—Happy birthday, Olivia!

We are social beings, so when we were asked to isolate there had to be a good reason. The coronavirus was a good one. The problem is that there is no clarity in what we are presently being asked to do: Isolate, don’t isolate; wear masks, don’t wear masks, start living your life again, no don’t! Not only are these . . .
