Just today

The world as we know it has changed”

Practically every online talk, panel discussion or any other digital communication uses the line or a variation. I’m guilty of it too, if not spoken aloud then in my mind.

It’s just that we’re in a pandemic and so the repetition like a stuck record – the world as we know it has changed. The world has been changing all along, just that we humans usually don’t see things until they hold us by the shoulders and shake us really hard. And then our eyes open.

It forces us to confront ourselves and maybe we take risks or we become more conservative. Maybe it becomes a turning point in moving from a self centered to an other centered people. Maybe we grow or then we become diminished. Maybe we discover reserves or then we sink into despair. Maybe we live completely today.

Just today.

Recent rains and these pretties came alive
