Am I being a panicked wuss or am I being sensible?
We’ve cancelled our 15-day road trip from Queensland to Victoria. It seemed a bit risky.
With one of us (not me!) with a chronic lung condition, the thought of being over a thousand kms from home if CORVID-19 struck would not be fun.
We will ‘self-isolate’ for as many weeks as we think is wise and then we’ll rethink our plans. There is so much information – some real, some false – being issued via all modes of media. The one fact remaining is that the exposure risks are increasing rapidly and treatment is scarce.
Only one thing to do now and that is isolate ourselves as much as possible.
We have enough chicken stock in the freezer to make soup for quite a while. There is pasta and rice aplenty in the pantry - and ingredients for pancakes if we become desperate.
Lemons are ripening on the tree.
However, sadly, I do not think this catastrophe will be over much before September.
Will I have anything to write about? Or will my new jotting notebook remain empty?
Time will tell.
Stay safe everyone.
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
