Life is change, change is life. This is the way of things.
For generations, we’ve aspired to an ideal of ‘world peace’, yet nobody really knows what that actually means. The truth is, we don’t know what peace is. We don’t know what it would take to have or maintain it, and we most certainly aren’t willing to do what’s necessary to make it ever come close to being a reality.
The fear is palpable. Never in my short lifetime of 44 years have I seen or experienced something like this COVID-19 event, and it’s quite revealing, if not frustrating, annoying, infuriating and humbling. It will, ultimately, be a positive shift for us all.
I took my aging car in for an overdue oil change yesterday. I wasn’t expecting much, as the “quick change” places generally want to process and get you out as quickly as possible. I can see both sides of the argument: someone in a hurry doesn’t likely want to be up-sold on things, nor do they want to idly chit-chat. On the other side, if they’re busy in the shop, they need to keep the line moving.
